Default Just Purchased - 14 Passat TDI 6-Speed

Wow this is an awesome car! Coming from a mk4 golf tdi so the Passat is a big improvement. Sad I'll just sell it back to VW soon though.

It has over 50k miles with full service history, is there anything I should look for to get me through the couple months I'll own it?

They are a great ride! Wish I still had mine, but sadly a few clutch retainer-spring teeth broke off out of warranty, and it only made sense to sell it back at that point.

Other than the obvious fluid level checks, don't worry about a thing. Drive and enjoy.

My 14 Passat SE TDI is the second thing that they can pry from my cold dead hands. 45 mpg highway.

I can't remember the date, but if you didn't own it before the story broke, you are not eligible for the buyback.

Not true. Cars purchased between September 2015 in June 2016 receive a reduced restitution payment that amounts to $1000-$2000 less. But unless the fix has been performed on a car, all current owners are eligible, with the minor exception of a few types of salvage-title vehicles.

Why would you Purchase this wonderful car just to turn around and sell it back? Absolutely makes no sense......they have a fix for it now! If it is such a great car why not keep it and do the fix come with a great warranty.....

There is no fix for the manual passat. $7k profit after turn in is why. But I'm going to drive it for a little bit.

That's right a brain fart but I am sure that will be the next fix announced

I purchased my 2015 on May 31st 2016 and I am getting 2 payments. One should be shortly since I had Phase 1 done already.
