Shut-off (not cheat) devices are everywhere!

Opel has admitted that the engine management software in Zafiras shuts off the exhaust treatment system under certain conditions. They also say this is legal. The announcement has come from the Transport Minister in Germany, and sounds not unlike Mitsubishi's recent admission about its system shutting off at a certain temperature. The difference seems to be that whereas Mitsubishi admitted to setting it to shut off at a temperature chosen for other (non-emissions) reasons, the same is not true of Opel. The systems are designed to shut off in certain circumstances, and there's nothing necessarily suspicious about it.
