Default Website to see what happen to buyback?

Someone one time posted a website to show what happened to buybacks. Anyone know which one it is? I looked through my history, but couldn't find anything. I guess I didn't comment in the thread.

Most I have read are using carfax to check the vin.

I did enter my old VIN number and it revealed the fix occured in September 2018 so it would seem the car was not crushed. When I turned it in at the end of January 2017, it had a little over 7k on the odo. I am kind of curious as to how much it was sold for and the location.

I entered the vin on my 2013 Golf TDI, every box was checked off except the emissions warranty, which said 'pending'. I just bought it three days ago(27th). Great little car, with 25k on it, and it's nearly perfect inside and out. Its a medium gray metallic and looks great, what I wanted when I bought my new 2013 Jetta TDI in 2013. The price on the Golf was about $4,000 more than I had to spend, and I wanted new, and the idea of buying a low end model didn't exactly appeal to me. The Jetta was the TDI Premium



I loved the Jetta, and I was happy with it. I was sad to have to sell it, but isn't it funny, 2 years ago this month I sold my Jetta. I never thought I'd have another VW, much less a TDI. After selling my 71 Karmann Ghia last spring I really thought that was the last of VW in my life.


Never say never!

Our '12 Passat was bought back, June '17

according to VW diesel info, no modifications have been applied. Some how I think vw diesel info site is more for $$$ payout that tracking cars.

there was a generic VIN look up page that shows the title moving around on buybacks, I forgot the exact one though.

I found this website: https://www.vehiclehistory.com/


It doesn't say much though. I think that's the website I was looking for, but was mistaking on that it provided more info.

From this post: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread...68#post3297168

... I am guessing that you are inquiring about your prior 2010 Jetta TDI and not the 2015 Passat that is below your username.

It is believed that they are flattening most, if not all, of the 2009 and 2010 buybacks.

That is what it looks like at the junkyard across the street from my work. Lots of early cars going to the crusher, and late ones that look beat.

In July, I turned in a pristine 2012 Jetta TDI w/premium. VIN shows up as having open recalls for the emissions. I'm not sure how long it takes for the buybacks to show back up on the market, but I'm assuming at this point it has probably been crushed.

Make sure you use uppercase letters. For example:

3vwll7aj5cm318036 results in "not part of VW diesel settlement"

3VWLL7AJ5CM318036 gives a valid result.

I suspect that Volkswagen is still managing inventory. So this seems likely but it's by no means certain.

Forgot to mention it had 109K miles when I turned it in.

I found my buyback. It went to Michigan in the spring of 2017 and found its way to a dealership in Atlanta. Somebody is going to get a nice car. https://www.volkswagenofmarietta.com...-GA/3346743293

Yeah, with 109k it is probably crushed. The value is not so far over the cost of the repairs and warranty.
