When were you told? It's common knowledge they have been doing this for well over a month....

Surfstar is the only person in that thread which had a useful response. He gave examples, everyone else was speculating on something they hadn't even taken 5 minutes to research. Do a basic search on Craigslist or any national car search engine in the last month and it's flooded with fixed 2.0 vehicles from both private parties and dealers.

I did agree with one thing said in the other thread, it's surprising that most people aren't advertising the extended warranty of these vehicles.

Bought a 2013 passat SEL.3 days ago.that according to her is a buyback..checked carfax.. and it WAS sold back to VW corp. in June 2017 and then in my dealers inventory..now I have it

It is possible that VW was granted approval to do this without that approval having been made public (or maybe it was made public, but I/we missed the memo). It was only a matter of time before this happened. No big deal ...

I have only seen Gen 3 buybacks for sale so far (2015's). It sounds like Gen 2's may be for sale now as well. I have yet to see any Gen 1 buybacks (2009-2014 MK6's) for sale.

Got my last oil change today. Now it's time to ride this horsey hard for another 15k -20k miles before turning it in wet to VDub late next year. Buyer beware!

And this is why I'm buying one with 19K and documented service records.

Mine will have 70K and perfect maintenance.

Hope the next car you buy gives exactly what you deserve.

You're right. I will horribly abuse this car. I deserve a total lemon for my next car. And what do you deserve for being so stupid that you wasted money on "perfect maintenance" on a car you will be dumping back to VW?

Wow.

Taking care of things is considered a waste...
