Volkswagen AG will ask the owners of 11 million vehicles that include emissions cheat software to report to dealerships to have their vehicles "refit" to correct the problem, the company announced Sept. 29.

Volkswagen hasn't spelled out exactly what this fix will entail, but said it would present its action plan to regulators before the end of October.

The company will inform the owners of the vehicles, and has set up websites for the affected brands, which include Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, and SEAT.

About 480,000 Volkswagen vehicles and 15,000 Audi vehicles were sold in the U.S. market with the software cheat. Globally, about 5 million Volkswagen, 2.1 million Audi, 1.2 million Skoda, and 700,000 SEAT vehicles have been affected. The software cheat wasn't included in any Porsche cars, according to spokesman Peter Heinz Thul.
