I would think that in the USA, de-registering one's vehicle (IE taking one's property) without due process would be a Constitutional violation.

The agreement that VW reached with the EPA/CARB stipulated that any state that received settlement money could not ban the registration and operation of any of the suspect vehicles, repaired or not. Of course, governments have been known to ignore things they've agreed to in the past. :)

True. Nothing is forever. Or "...for as long as the sun shines, grass grows, and the rivers flow" as our government might put it.

The cars are not confiscated, just not allowed on public roads.
You will be allowed to use your car on your property, or on other private property with that owner's permission.

You would just own an "off road use only" TDI. :)

So no reason why it can't be done, you don't comply with on road use rules.

That article originally linked to is poorly written, by someone who obviously has an agenda of some sort, but does not have technical knowledge nor proper knowledge of the underlying situations in either the EU or in USA.

Yeah, it's just Germany where this is happening. Won't happen here in the US for many reasons, but most especially what Scott DeWitt says above. The lawyers would have a field day if some state tried that here.

There are other potential issues (involving the states taking their pay-of)f, but the Constitution isn't one of them. This would be no different than refusing to renew registration for failing an emissions test, or state inspection. And there has been plenty of due process, complete with court case and judge.

Yes, and that due process says that no state that accepted settlement funds is permitted to deny registration solely based on the repair/non-repair status of an affected class vehicle. To my knowledge, every plaintiff state accepted the money, so at least in the US that is something that is not permitted to happen.

Just say your car is a weapon, then they have to let you keep it. 2nd amendment. ;)
