The Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board are today expected to announce approval of a solution for about 84,000 older Volkswagen (VLKAY) diesel vehicles that can emit excess emissions, Reuters reports.

The German automaker agreed last year to offer to buy back up to 475,000 U.S. 2.0-liter diesel vehicles or offer fixes if regulators approved.

The expected announcement is said to cover a fix for 84,390 2012-2014 Passat diesel vehicles with automatic transmissions.

In January, regulators approved a fix for 67,000 2015 model diesel, leaving around 325,000 vehicles still awaiting approval for a fix.
