They wouldn't take your cars back unless within 18 months/18k miles(reoffer period) after the emission fix, your car is out of service for no less than a total of 30 days for the same warrantable problem, or they can't fix the same warrantable problem after trying to fix it for 4 times. Language is language, rule is rule.

I was thinking what if they can't fix a warrantable failure out of the preoffer period and your car is totally dead(hope that will never happen of course). At that point they are not obliged to take your car back. It's up to them what to do. Buy back? Possible. But they can choose to give you nothing.

As BKmetz stated, there should be a yellow sticker applied as part of the fix for EPA reasons:



And if the dealer submitted their paperwork correctly, it should also show as completed on VW’s website.

Once again, the whole point of this thread is that the new EMISSIONS STICKER is NOT there.

Are you relying on Carfax for open recalls?
VW diesel site shows your emissions repair is only partially completed.
Have you looked there?

Then as also stated, check here: https://www.vwdieselinfo.com/

What more do you want? The only other option is to go to your dealer and have them run your VIN in the warranty database.

Now, considering you just bought the car, it’s very possible that the websites haven’t updated yet if they did the recall shortly before you bought it. Give it a week or two.

The sticker in the picture above (sticker on lower right) is that for a 2015 Gen III 2.0L TDI




The sticker in the picture above is what I got when I received Phase 2A on a 2015 Gen III 2.0L TDI Emissions fix.



The picture above (sticker on the far right) is that received when a 2015 Gen III gets both Phase 2A & Phase 2B done at the same time.


I haven't seen a sticker yet for a vehicle that has Phase 1 done, followed by Phase 2A only, and then later having Phase 2B done.
