You don't need to give them your actual mileage on the call. You can tell them a higher number, giving you some buffer. So long as you show up with MORE than 'the number you gave them' and less 'than the number you gave them plus 2000' you are fine.

If you think you are going to drive 5000km in the 20 days you are given, give them an odo number that is 3000km higher than your current odo.

Another article related to the city ban.

Even before Tuesday's decision, diesel was in near freefall in Germany. In 2015, diesel accounted for 48 per cent of the market. Last year, the figure was 39 per cent.... Fiat Chrysler Automobiles... plans to kill off diesel cars by 2022, according to a Financial Times report, evidently because the cost of developing much cleaner diesel engines will be murderous. Toyota, for its part, has said it is unlikely to launch another diesel model.

It's only the beginning of the end of those most polluted diesel passenger vehicle that does not meet the latest emission requirement.

The question is why isn't the most polluting gas car being pulled off the road as well. Any pre 2000 gas engine car should be banned too, right?

Yep. Older gasoline cars release more NOx than modern diesels.

If no Mazda SkyActiv-D then how about SkyActiv-X?

I'm going to be turning mine in around May. How long did it take from first filling out the forms online to getting approval for the buy back?

The TDI settlement went very smoothly for me. I had all the paperwork approved within one week. That was last May 2017.

You can go ahead and start the online process, then pick a buyback/trade date later on. I changed my trade-in dates no less than 4 times, due to the replacement/new car dealer incompetence. Keep in mind that every time you change the buyback/trade-in date, it moves ahead by 4 weeks.

If you plan on turning in around May, I would advise you to start the process now. Like I said above, scheduling/wait is running at least 4 weeks right now.

I was hanging around at Step 11 for months... about 11 of them. Just changing my buyback dates and mileage to figure out how they changed over time. Simultaneously I was looking for a replacement car, which I found in January.

Once I was confident that the new car would suit our needs, I went back into the portal and submitted my numbers and option (buyback), and was hoping to be able to do the appointment around April 1st (the date I had determined that my mileage would still allow the maximum buyback amount).

I submitted everything into the portal on Feb 23rd. I had to upload my DL a couple ties cause it expired on the 23rd, but I completed the portal process and chose my appointment this AM (earliest I could get was April 6th, pretty close to my goal).

So, 11 business days start to finish, and a couple of those were due to the DL issue, so you may be able to get through it in a week if everything goes smooth. note - the appointment options didn't really change much based on the dealer I chose (tried three), so I would guess that once you get an approved offer - it will only allow appointments 3+ weeks out by default. I should be getting my 20 day phone call mid next week, and beyond that, it's just a matter of returning the car back to stock and making sure all my personal junk is out of it. Oh, and hoping it runs since it's been parked for a month or so...

Drove 1300 or so kms out of 2000 kms allowed, and returned the car empty.
Hopefully, they will not try to load it on the upper deck of the transport truck, it may just run out if they lean the car back enough...

Mines a manual car and what I understand is that the cars are going to be crushed as there is no fix, how stringent are they with taking stuff off. I have set of projector headlights that Id like to take off and dont have a set of OEM replacements as I sold them years ago. Wondering how theyd feel if I asked if I could keep them. Anybody have any experience in this??

Unless it's a manual Passat, there is a fix for it. Manual cars have been getting fixed for a year now.

But anyway, yes, if your car goes back with missing headlights, you will 100% be denied as it is obvious stripping, which is against the settlement.

Even the college kids they've hired as claims admin's at the dealerships are going to notice that....
