Yesterday I test drove 2x Mazda 3, both were hatchbacks, one was a GX, was ok, but the GT fully loaded is the one I fell in love with, we started talking numbers, I thought I'll trade in my 04 TDI,(no room for a 4th car in my driveway) but the salesman left it to the last minute to show me the carproof report, the car in 2015 had an insurance claim of $12,000. repair to the rear and centre rear.

That was a deal breaker for me, he should've known to tell me that upfront, I did not think a Mazda dealer would do such thing.

For now I will wait to sell back my 12 Passat and then shop around for Mazda 3, GT.

I will keep my 04 Jetta, as a it has been a good car to me, still going strong and reliable at 362,000KM.

As for rust, my daughter 05 Mazda 3 got rusty real fast, but I understand the rust issue has been addressed since by Mazda.

They all do, some faster than others.

Just have Krown T-40 applied to your next car. And if you have an issue as I do with having holes drilled, Krown it yourself. My 15 year old Honda had zero rust. It went to a friend who was thrilled to get it still in like new condition.

Ontario court hearing set for 3/31/17. If judge approves on that day, then progress should begin.

there are some interesting things going on in this thread, if you haven't read it yet: http://forums.tdiclub.com/forumdisplay.php?f=99
especially for those folks who fall into the 'imported a US car to Canada' debacle.

I have the equipment to spray the Rust Check, I do not mind the few holes, is the Krown stuff in a liquid form, and is it available for DIYselfer, and where, annual thing or just once ?

Krown is available in T32 (pink) and T40 (gold), both are liquids. The T40 is thicker and better for the underside. I use it exclusively within the body panels and underside. It creeps, especially on warmer days.

I buy a 20 liter pail at the Krown dealer.

It is applied annually. Any product that is applied once is useless as far as I'm concerned. I apply Krown T40 the first three or four years in a row. After that, you can go every second year.

We (a lab where I worked) tested Rust Check along with Krown and one other product according to test standards. The Krown came out on top.

And don't waste your time with those electronic modules that are supposed to stop corrosion. A total waste of money.

Thank you for the reply.

When you a say a dealer, do you mean the shop where they apply it ?

How much for 20L ?

How many cars/coats 20L does on average car size?

Shelf life ?

Yes, a Krown application centre.

Price was about $230 years ago.

If you put 4 liters on a car, that is really soaking it. So you can do a car at least 5 times.

No shelf life.

Just used the new Canadian Black Book (CBB) tool at the bottom of the VW settlement page.

With 60K kms, our 2014 Golf wagon, Comfortline 6s has a CBB value of $17,350. Original MSRP was $28,075. Not accounting for an undercarridge dent (visible on the passenger side) and a windshield crack.

Did you also try to take a shortcut through a snow bank only to find out it was pure ice?

So what were to happen if I were to buy myself a 2014 Touareg TDI tomorrow? Would it be fixable? Wonder what will happen to all of the course people want to keep, but that can't be fixed?

LOL. I have no idea what happened but it pushed up like it was made of tin. No paint damage that I can see and certainly no door issues. Just looks weird.
