it will guide you through the steps. you do not need a US address for correspondence. After you do this, photocopy your driver's license and registration and send it with the last page (printed and signed) to the address in Auburn Hills, MI.
too bad about that gift card thing. I told my new neighbour about (her Dad owns an 'affected' vehicle) and scored him a grand.
Thank you TDIFred, I will try this and hope it works. Have you heard back from VWoA?

Yes, they confirmed that they had received all the necessary paperwork. I await the results of their 'investigation'.

Be lucky you got it, given that you bought the car at a discount because of it. It would be more fair for the previous owner to get all of it actually

May I pick your brain? Did you buy privately or from a used dealer or VW dealer? I noticed on autotrader some VW/audi dealerships are offering the used ones. Curious to know your thoughts for seeking a 2010 over a 2012 or even a 2015? Was it price point or a specific mileage?

I am trying to form my plan No wrong answers just curious if you are willing to share.

I bought a 2010 privately. Stumbled across the right car for the right price. Previous owner already applied for the money, so I doubt I can get anything. Not really concerned though, the purchase price reflected the rebate already

Thanks. I guess you don't have a current CR to contemplate giving up? Either way I like your plan.

The "Opt-out and objection deadline" is March 4th.

Well anyone can only choose that option AFTER knowing what their settlement will be, yet the "Settlement approval court hearing (Ontario)" is March 31st.

How does that make sense??????

Buyback OR Trade-In of your vehicle AND Cash Payment

OR

Approved Emissions Modification
. Keep your vehicle AND receive an extended emissions warranty AND Cash Payment. This option is only available if a modification is approved by regulators.


They missed one option.

If VW does not find an "approved modification" and you decide to keep your car because the buy-out is unacceptable, you get zilch...nothing.

I purchased my car less than a week after this mess hit the news and I agree that I did pay less than I would have had to pay prior.

But the value of my car now has been affected as well since September 18th because of decisions VW has made since September 18th. The market for these cars now is virtually non existent which was not the case when I purchased. Not being able to participate in a buyback (even at an amount less than those that owned prior to September 18th) doesn't seem right.

I am in the same position. bought the car at a dealer auction the day before the news broke and transferred it to my name a week later so I don't qualify either so I guess I will be keeping it for now.
