Expiration of legal deadlines within the dieselgate?

In Germany, the deadline for suing in warranty right is reached after two years. After three years one can no longer be sued for damages. Dieselgate, which started with accuses against Volkswagen already lasts for two years, however, there is no nationwide compensation payment. Therefore, the German consumer advice center "Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverband" has requested an extension of the legal deadlines but did not get any reaction from Volkswagen yet. For this reason, it can be assumed that Volkswagen waits for the expiry dates of the deadline in a few months' time. Then, they cannot be taken to court any more.
