Volkswagen sees hardware fixes for older diesels as not feasible - source

HAMBURG, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Volkswagen believes a hardware retrofit of older diesel cars is not feasible in the near term, a source at the carmaker said on Monday, ahead of a German coalition committee meeting on the matter.

The person, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that suppliers were unwilling to assume liability, and that car manufacturers also rejected guarantees for hardware changes.
