Should I buy a Volkswagen Scirocco in light of the emissions scandal?

You may have been asked something along these lines already. Having undertaken some extensive research, I have recently decided to purchase a used Scirocco. The recent emissions scandal has however placed some doubt in my mind. I'm looking at a diesel model (2013/2014) - either the older 2.0 TDI 140 engine or the newer 150 one. Is there any reason to discount either of these?

If VWG is cheating the NOx test, then everyone else with 2.0 litre diesel engines of the same power outputs must be. I don't think the 2.0 140/150 TDI use AdBlue.
