I'm hoping this is still somewhat related to the thread. While the TDI in the Sportwagen is in limbo, I would hope that VW would offer their hybrid as an option to the Sprotwagen models. Having a lower fuel usage option in a car that is so deserving of it should continue. Perhaps they will eventually get to the best option - a hybrid diesel in the Sportwagen!

I Hope I'm posting in the right place. My 2013 JSW has a squeak in the sunroof. Does anybody have a fix?
I love this car, Phillip

Wrong place. Look for the section related to the year and model of your car.

I used to think the same, but from an engineering perspective, a diesel is a poor choice for a hybrid, where the engine constantly turns off and on, which is something inherently cold-blooded diesels do not like to do.

Wouldn't the motor be used enough to stay warm? I understand it's harder on the starter from the high compression?

Well, it would depend on the driving cycle. Just puttering around town, and if the battery is half way decent sized, the engine most likely wouldn't stay near enough operating temp to remain in its most economical operating range.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Passat is included in the list, but was not named. It was named as one of the TDI models included in the approx. 488,000 affected vehicles when they originally announced the diesel problem back in Sept. 2015. I hope it is, as I would like to have that option if I don't like the fix they propose.

That said, I'd take the value of the Jetta from then, plus some cash, and give it back. It has 100,000 miles and little things are getting annoying. For my Passat, I'm more inclined to see if there's going to be an acceptable fix and keep the car. Looking at NADAGuides, my Passat is listed about $4-5K less than it was when this started. Just have to see what comes down.

Yes it is an affected car, but it is not a GEN. 1 commonrail. It is fitted with SCR, so most likely you won't be eligible for a buy-back and will only need a software update.

Just this morning I saw this news article that said VW will propose an option to fix or buyback all TDI models in the US, and the buyback price will be at fair market value plus a chunk of cash, $5000 was a figure tossed around but not confirmed. Tempting, but BECAUSE of the emission issue, what would "fair market value" be at this point, probably very low, at least until there is a "fix" available at which time the market value might go back up.

Edit, re-read the article and it states that the market value would be based on value PRIOR to the emission story became public...
