So, if a vehicle has all green checkmarks but no offer--or is under review by CRC, which deadline applies? The Sept 1 deadline for filing or the Dec 1 deadline for having an signed offer letter at VW?

Sep 1 is the deadline for filing a new claim, there was another member here that posted that he even recieved a call from VW after an appeal with CRC to open a new account after the appeal was ruled in his favor. Just posting what worked for me, good luck!

That means anyone evaluating your case is going to assume that it was not capable of being on the road legally rather than concluding it was but you were driving it without lawful authorization. Do you see the problem here? Your only explanation of why you are eligible for the money w/o those records is by establishing that you were breaking the law while driving the car (that is, *if* you fit into one of those relatively common scenarios of driving it under the old registration in Nevada or waiting until that registration expired before titling it in California).
Thank you for a well reasoned reply.
I will say - nobody knows when this car was brought to California. I didn't drive it. The registration in Nevada was good beyond when I switched to California. All available paperwork (DMV kept bill of sale from NV) shows that it was registered in Nevada until I registered it in California. Legally on the road in both states with no lapse.
Anyway - I'll submit and we'll see what happens.
Thanks again.

I have an appeal submitted to CRC 3 months ago. (Not NV car from prior post) No word. I'm tempted to open a new account but...........has anyone had success with this?

I'm creating for myself a Nov 15 deadline to receive a new offer letter. If one doesn't come by then, I will submit the 'eligible owner restitution' offer letter shortly after that, to make sure it's in their hands by Dec 1. At least that way I'll get something.

Anybody want to bet whether the CRC will have finished their work by then?

You'd have to cross reference Nevada's laws. My prediction is there will be a string of laws that address people expiring the previous owner's registration before paying for their own. It might be something like in California you have two weeks to register the vehicle. Then you say well it was in Nevada for those months, but Nevada probably has some law requiring you to declare residency within some short span of time (like two weeks) and mandating you get a license. People do this all the time, but the laws don't allow it even though they don't usually get busted. Submit your claim and best of luck to you but it's not clean cut.

Dear X:

Based on the documents and information you have provided as part of your claim with Reference No. Xxxx, you are not eligible to participate in the 2.0-Liter Settlement Claims Program. The reason(s) for your ineligibility is described below.

Vehicle is not eligible - Your vehicle is not eligible to participate in the Settlement Program.

Just got the email. This is for stage 2 fix, purchased the car a week ago.
Stage 1 was done with previous owner, than was wrecked and ended up on IAAI.

If the car already had both fixes done already, why did you think it would still be eligible for buyback? It is either the fix or buyback not both. I see nothing wrong with rejecting this claim if it is as you just stated.

If I understand correctly the previous owner had both fixes done and collected his money. Then crashed the car and you ended up buying it. Then you tried to submit it for buyback.

Applied for stage 2 fix, not buyback. Previous owner had only stage 1 fix done.

Your post specifically said "Stage 2 was done with previous owner".

It is my understanding that if a claim is on file, even if it's sitting there with all green checkmarks, we're still good till Dec 1. As I noted earlier, I've set myself an internal deadline that if I don't have a response from the CRC by Nov 1, and an actual offer letter in hand by Nov 15, then no later than the 20th of November I will send in the eligible owner restitution letter so that I get something.

The Bosch Settlement Check for the full amount (!!!) arrived in the mail today for a July 11 rebuilt TDI turn in. This is fairly standard timing of Bosch payment on clean title vehicles.
