The Volkswagen Group broke the trust of its customers and damaged its long-standing brand through high tech unethical practices. “The modern car is nothing more than a mobile computer that combines processors, sensors, backbones, and data links” (Grier, 2015). In a push to sell more diesel vehicles in the United States and exploit their technological engineering, Volkswagen Group created and outfitted vehicles with a computer software device that would know when a vehicle was being tested for emissions and would then manipulate test results to show lower emission.
