Bosch settlement
 
Anyone else on here applied yet for the Bosch settlement, who like myself (and I'm probably in a big minority here), opted out of the VW settlement and kept their car? The verbiage is awful on the settlement site - www.boschvwsettlement.com. I spoke with someone there and after 20 minutes on the phone, was told I properly registered on the site by choosing the option as a eligible seller, even though I opted out of the VW settlement (as mentioned above), still own the car, am the original owner, and have no plans to sell it.

My assessment is that the Bosch settlement website is a clusterf***. Almost like they're making it difficult on purpose.

Did you follow the Bosch online claim link as directed by the web page you linked to?

https://boschvwsettlement.mdl.online

It says the Bosch portal for owners who opted out of the VW settlement will open mid May.

PK, there are many thousands of $$$$s in your BB

and lots of cash to do the fix.

You're the original owner

Why no cash for you?

guessing the fix might not be open for you 'cause of MODs?

Which doesn't make sense, because there's a deadline to apply for it. I called the 800 number on the card, and someone said I filled it out right, but I'm still not fully convinced.

I don't know what the hell you mean by a BB.

And what the hell do you care why I didn't opt for a fix, of which none was announced for the 2010 yet? Go troll someone else's thread.

The May 1 deadline is for eligible sellers, so doesn't apply to you.

I believe the reason for the delay is that the Bosch settlement isn't a sealed deal until a final court hearing scheduled May 14. The "approved settlement" language Bosch is using in their material is probably what they submitted to the court for approval. It appears you'll have until August to register.

Fyi BB = buyback

so just to reiterate, if anyone submitted a claim for the buy back or restitution and was approved there is no need to register again , correct?

From today's email.....

To Whom It May Concern,

This is a reminder for Bosch Class Members who fall into the following two categories to register online, at BoschVWSettlement.mdl.online by May 1, 2017, in order to have their claims considered for eligibility:

  1. 2.0-liter Volkswagen Settlement Eligible Sellers who did not identify themselves by the end of the Eligible Seller Identification Period for the 2.0-liter Volkswagen Settlement. You must register to participate in the Bosch Settlement if you meet ALL of the below conditions:
a. Purchased an eligible 2.0-liter vehicle on or before September 18, 2015;
b. Sold that vehicle after September 18, 2015, but before June 28, 2016;
c. Did not opt out of the 2.0-liter Volkswagen Settlement; AND
d. Did not identify yourself by September 16, 2016 (the end of the Eligible Seller Identification Period in the 2.0-liter Volkswagen Settlement).
  1. 3.0-liter Volkswagen Settlement Eligible Former Owners of an Eligible Vehicle who will not be filing a claim in the 3.0-liter Volkswagen Settlement. You must register to participate in the Bosch Settlement if you meet the following conditions:
a. Purchased an eligible 3.0-liter vehicle on or before September 18, 2015; AND
b. Sold that vehicle after September 18, 2015, but on or before January 31, 2017.
OR
c. Purchased an eligible 3.0-liter vehicle on or before November 2, 2015; AND
d. Sold that vehicle after November 2, 2015, but on or before January 31, 2017.


IMPORTANT NOTE: IF YOU FILED (OR WILL FILE) A CLAIM IN ONE OR BOTH OF THE 2.0-LITER OR 3.0-LITER VOLKSWAGEN SETTLEMENTS, AND THE CLAIM IS APPROVED, YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY AN ELIGIBLE CLASS MEMBER IN THE BOSCH SETTLEMENT AND WILL RECEIVE PAYMENT IF YOU DO NOT OPT OUT OF THE BOSCH SETTLEMENT. IF THIS DESCRIBES YOUR SITUATION, YOU DO NOT NEED TO FILE A CLAIM IN THE BOSCH SETTLEMENT.

Once registered, Bosch Class Members will receive future correspondence from the Claims Administrator regarding when and how to file a complete claim. If and when final approval of the Bosch Settlement is granted by the Court, the categories of Bosch Class Members described above will have 60 days to file their claims.

The deadlines for other categories of Bosch Class Members to register and file a claim are as follows:
  1. Bosch Class Members who opted out of the 2.0-liter and/or 3.0-liter Volkswagen Settlements must file a claim no later than August 15, 2017.
  1. All other Bosch Class Members, including those who do not file a claim in the 2.0-liter or 3.0-liter Volkswagen Settlements, have until December 31, 2019, to file a claim.
For more information about the Bosch Settlement, please visit www.BoschVWSettlement.com or call the Claims Administrator toll-free at 1-844-305-1928.

Sincerely,

Bosch Settlement
Claims Administrator

Absolutely. According to the reminding email sent out by Porsche yesterday.

"Approved" means when you get an offer for buyback if you elect to do so, I guess.

I actually still don't understand what I'm supposed to do with Bosch. I received the same email.

I had 2 tdi's. I sold one to BB a couple of months ago. I'm still driving the 2nd one until I find a replacement car.
The way I understand it is that when I sold the first one back, I was automatically registered for bosch, and when the 2nd one goes back, I will be registered again. I might wait the full two years that VW allows, so I guess I won't get a bosch check on that one for awhile?

Then you go to Bosch website to register your second car and you'll get the bosch money without filing a claim for VW settlement.

I don't meet the requirements of an eligible seller though. This seems overly confusing :(

Absolutely nothing. The only time you need to do something with Bosch is if you:
  • Opted out of the VW settlement
  • Were an Eligible Seller who failed to file in time
  • or simply never filed a claim with VW before the claims period ended (which is another 18 months from now)
If you filed an approved claim with VW (and you'll know it's approved when you get an offer letter), you'll get paid by Bosch automatically.

You can initiate the VW process for the second car now. There's no need to wait until you're ready, and there's no need to choose a buyback date (or fix appointment) until you're ready.

Also, "eligible seller" means you sold your car after the scandal broke, but before the settlement was finalized (there's a specific date range). You're not one of those, so you can disregard that language any time you come across it in both the VW and Bosch material.

Thanks for trying to help. I'm still thoroughly confused by their website. I don't qualify as an eligible seller, and that's the only way I can find any registration. I clicked "submit a claim" and it took me to the eligible seller section.
