[WASHINGTON] Influential US magazine Consumer Reports urged the Justice Department to hike compensation to 475,000 owners of polluting Volkswagen diesel vehicles and allow owners who opt for a fix to reconsider.

In comments filed on Friday on the proposed agreement, the magazine said the buyback offer undervalues retail prices and urged the use of a retail value that "would lead to buyback offers for consumers that would be at least several hundred dollars higher."
