"A University discovered this during road tests and reported it as a possible problem to VW (not realizing it was a cheat). VW realized that the EPA might do road tests (i.e. test tailpipe emissions while driving), so they did a recall and patched the software to run in smog safe mode for a period of time after being dyno’d. Unfortunately, the EPA ran their road test for longer than VW calculated and saw a sudden spike in emissions during road testing. The EPA then told VW they had better explain what was causing this or they couldn’t certify their 2016 line. At that point VW confessed to the whole thing."
