I'm I wrong
Here's the court document answer:
The Settlement adequately and fairly compensates Class Members. The Settlement requires Volkswagen to establish a Funding Pool in the amount of $10.033 billion. (Dkt. No. 1685 ¶ 2.42.) This amount presumes 100% Buyback of all purchased Eligible Vehicles and 100% Lease Termination of all leased Eligible Vehicles.

And in the small print Minimum escrow funding is 'bout 7.5 % ????


~~~ The initial Funding Amount shall be $1,500,000,000. If and when the funding level of the Escrow Account reaches the “Minimum Balance,” which shall initially be set at $1,250,000,000, the Escrow Agent shall alert Defendant, and Defendant shall,

within 7 business days, deposit such funds in the Escrow Account as are necessary to bring the balance back to the Funding Amount
.

F. Every 6 months after the Escrow Account is first funded, the Funding Amount shall be adjusted to the lower of (i) the initial amount of $1,500,000,000 or (ii) 25% of the amount of the total Funding Pool that has not yet been spent, as verified by the Claims Supervisor.


In the event that the Funding Amount is adjusted, the minimum balance shall be adjusted proportionately. For example, if the Funding Amount is adjusted to $900,000,000, the Minimum Balance shall be adjusted to $750,000,000. ~~~

I don't have the answer.
Let's be honest here, some of your power comes from clean hydro and some comes from exported pollution from generators in eastern Montana.

Took delivery of our 2015 Golf Sport wagon yesterday--13,750 miles on the odometer. Love it! Great power, smooth and quiet. According to the computer, we got 60.8 mpg on our trip back from Atlanta. Mostly running 65 mph. I realize that is most likely and over estimate and I plan on refueling and calculating the mileage. Even if the computer is off by 10%, I'm still getting mid 50's--better than a hybrid!

Welcome to the Club.

Well over 50Mpg is easy at under 75Mph on a warmer day.

Figure out what you want to do for maintenance cycle.

I suggest "resetting" the cycle @ 20K, to get back on schedule

The car received the 20K service at about 13723 before it was offered up for sale. I intend to have the car serviced at 20K to get it back on the recommended schedule. My son was interested in my 2004 Jetta TDI wagon until he drove our 2015 GSW--now he may not want our 04.

I've recorded by best tank even on the JSW taking I-26 to Columbia and then I-77 back to Charlotte from Atlanta. It was around 52 (IIRC). Typical tanks for me are around 40. Must be something magical about fleeing Atlanta!

what do y'all think the inventory will be like over the next 3-5 months for used GSW tdi? part of me says - "wait for the holidays" and part of me says "get one before they're all gone"

Trip computer was not very accurate. Actual MPG for my first tank was 52.9--still awesome, but not 60.8! Was hoping the trip computer was more accurate.

I'd say inventory will stay flat, short to mid term. All the die hards have satisfied their asks.

In general, used car market will probably go through a big correction. But, TDIs are a special breed.

When I factor in I need to do my timing belt, brakes are due soon, and DSG next 10k miles, it could save me some $$. On the other hand my Jetta TDI has never given me mechanical issues. My ignition switch did just go out, but it's fixed now. It's nice knowing how our car was treated, but a newer car does sound nice.

i just pulled the trigger on a swap of a 2012 jetta for a 2015 jetta. i really didn't WANT to but fiscally it was silly not to. for a little over 9K I got into a CPO car 3 years newer with 15K miles from a car with 151K+. i still have the balance of the new car warranty then the CPO warranty kicks in and on top of that the VW extended emissions warranty. a diesel with 15k that comes with an 11 warranty for 9K? how do i not take it? like some else posted here "its like we won a car lottery"

I don't have an educated opinion but that doesn't seem to stop anyone so ...

Seems price point for 2015 TDI Jetta inventory (that's what I'm researching) varies greatly by geographic region. Out here in the PNW they're $20K. In the south, about $17k. My internal debate (which I was hoping to hash out here once I filtered through the sidebar of Sirius Radio)is whether I jump up from my 2012 Jetta TDI (6M) to a '15. It makes sense to me to drop my vehicle miles in half, get a newer vehicle, a serious warranty to go with, and perhaps some mechanical upgrades (engine improvement, backup camera etc) without having to go into my own pocket (BB).

Really appreciate those of you who have provided feedback on this very thing as you have waded through your own similar jaunt.

i'd strongly agree that it makes sense to take advantage and grab one. i just put a deposit down on a '15 GSW SE w/ under 7k miles - $20k out the door for a pristine, basically new TDI?
almost can't believe my luck, really.
