Volkswagen thinks it has a solution to appease angry U.S. drivers caught up in its emissions scandal and the solution is gift cards.

Under the headline "We’re Working to Make Things Right," Volkswagen launched a webpage where VW owners can enter their vehicle identification numbers and learn whether they qualify to receive up to $1,000 to compensate them for their unwitting role in one of the worst car scandals in history.

"Over the past several weeks, we’ve apologized to our loyal customers about the 2.0L TDI emissions issue," the company wrote on its voucher redemption site. "As we work tirelessly to develop a remedy, we ask for your continued patience."

The "goodwill package" is available to registered owners or lessees as of Sunday; anyone wanting to claim the $1,000 in gift cards will have to do so by 30 April 2016.
