I paid mine off in August - in the hope that the simplified processing might make it go a little faster. It looks like that might have been a good move.

I am noticing that people with financing are starting to get their offers, but it is still a trickle.

I don't think there aren't enough post 9/18/15 cars to make much of a statement as of yet.

It sort of seems like the people who had their docs verified sooner are getting the offer letters sooner. It isn't 100%, but it sure seems like there is a strong correlation. They haven't processed any for the week of 10/27 - 11/2 for example. Most of the processing is on the two earlier weeks.

When your eligibility is verified, you'll get an email saying that you have an offer available, and to log into the claims portal to download it.

I think it's too early to say that. The clock didn't start running until 10/25 at the earliest, and possibly 11/1, depending on how you interpret the settlement docs. Even though they were doing some document processing before that, I wouldn't think that time should count.

Have you considered adding a Check vs. EFT column?

Would it be better to rename "Date Eligibility Verified" to "Date of Offer"? I received the offer email today, but I'm pretty sure that the the portal had been showing "eligibility verified" status for 1 or 2 weeks.

Interesting how of the total 63 cars found eligible, 57 of them are Paid Off (non-financed) = 90%. Only 10% of the financed cars have processed even though the Paid Off group is only 42% of the group. Must be easier to deal with non-financed cars! unfair.

You aren't the first to make that observation. But the graphic from VW that shows the claims process shows an additional step for cars with liens - they need to contact the lender and get the payoff information. I don't know how long that actually takes, but it depends in part on how responsive your lender is.

A few days ago, there were no cars with liens that had an offer letter, so while the numbers seem minuscule, there is at least progress.

Has anyone wondered if there is any correlation between when you ORIGINALLY signed up for your claim to where we are now?

I only ask, because I had my documents approved on 10/15, and although another person, has the exact same submittal, and approval date, they are already at the turn in date, and I'm still waiting for my "offer".

BUT, I'm wondering, because I did have an issue with the document submission, which required me to start over and file a NEW claim on 9/24, because their portal took a dump while I was uploading my documents.

Wonder if there is any correlation to the original claim date? Anyone interested in adding this line in?

Just to clarify my statement above: I originally submitted my claim on 7/27, created my profile, etc etc. Then on 9/22 I tried to upload documents, and the portal crapped out. After a few days of back and forth with VW people, I was forced to file a new claim, with a new email, on 9/24, and start over. I wonder if this has any impact on dates.

I've been fooling with a copy of the spreadsheet and aggregated a couple numbers. The total claimed mileage is just over 44 million! Average vehicle is a 2012, 5 years old @ 71000 miles. That means the average driver is at 14200/year (1183/month) or just over the allotted monthly number VW has set. Just thought I would share.

Perhaps. UncrunchyTaco seems to own the thing - I have no more permissions to change stuff at this level than anyone else (and it isn't even clear that this person spends any time on these forums). I don't even know with certainty how one contacts him, but there is a "Comments" button in the upper right where you can post suggestions, and it seems that he does respond. So that's probably your best bet for suggestions.

That might have been a nice data point for 18 Oct, but now it's just an 'oh well'. Maybe the 3.0 liter folks can use it.

I suggest a column be added titled "date accepted on letter" as in my case there was a 5 day lag before they "accepted" and released their offer.

Financially it makes sense for them to save the VW Credit cars until last since they are still collecting interest on us!!! Pisses me off.

Interest rates are low enough that, whatever they're collecting, it isn't very much. And the timelines are short enough that, as long as they comply with them (which they haven't failed to do, so far, as the FTC's counting), they aren't going to be able to give much of a disadvantage to VW-financed cars anyway. Notice that they aren't processing privately-financed cars any faster.
