Volkswagen has long made headlines for its automotive innovations, but it 2015, the company was in the news for a less encouraging reason; that year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency charged that some VW's were equipped with a "defeat device" designed to cheat the Clean Air Act by skewing emissions, gas mileage and other critical measures. The company eventually found itself shelling out billions in settlements and penalties to resolve the issue.
