 Hundreds of Audi Volkswagen Korea customers are refusing to comply with the local auto distributors’ recall measures for its illegally faked emissions vehicles, according to the law firm Barun Law LLC.
 Last month, the Korean government announced it had approved Volkswagen’s first round of recall plans for 27,000 Tiguan SUVs to begin on Monday.
*first round: 1차
 However, following the recall approval, 610 Tiguan owners filed a law suit with the administrative court against the Ministry of Environment last month demanding a rejection of the automaker’s recall plans. They claimed the government’s investigation was insufficient and that measures of the recall are still not environmentally sound.
