Eventually we will find that VW were just the first ones to be caught.

At least Ford is safe, their trucks and SUVs are so heavy the mileage requirements don't apply and many states don't do emissions checks on vehicles with a GVW over 8500 lbs.

/full disclosure, my cargo van has a GVW of 8550 lbs, but it gets 26-28 mpg.

The firm vowed a "full and comprehensive investigation" into its latest fake data scandal.

What is crap?  Why is there a link to a science website in the Business tab?  How about linking to a real business site submitter?

/next they'll be posting Forbes links to the geek tab

I'm thinking that all these falsified emissions tests and cheaters are a sign that we've reached the feasible limits of emissions controls. I think that diesels at least have one more round to go in the US and I don't know how they are going to manage it.

That's probably true. There has to be a limit to existing technology and saying that car X has to meet emissions result Y to sell in whichever market puts the burden on manufacturers to either invent technology with a deadline or cheat. Clearly you can't expect somebody to suddenly have a brand new brainstorm for improving combustion engine technology just in time for the new model year. With Japanese workers dropping dead at their desks I find it hard to believe Nissan chose cheating the results because it was the easier path.
