Volkswagen's diesel emission scandal is seriously affecting it's sales.

According to The Verge, the German automaker is selling fewer cars in the United States.

Reports say VW sold 23,883 cars in the US last month, which is less than the 31,725 it sold November, 2014.

This bad news comes after automobile magazine, Car and Driver, named the Volkswagen Golf/GTI/Golf R among the 10 best cars of 2016.

Mike Duff, writer for Car and Driver, has spoken out on the publication's decision to put Volkswagen, despite it's ongoing diesel emission scandal, on the list.

"We fully acknowledge that this is a controversial decision. But is it nevertheless the right one."
