I did the buyback on my 2012 Touareg back in AUG. It had 93,000 miles and I got a little over $45k for it. Hated to see it go but couldn't pass on the money. The gentleman who I turned the vehicle over to told me that since there was no fix for the first gen 3.0 that if I hadn't done the buyback I wouldn't be able to re register it in a couple years. Not sure if there is any truth to that but its the second person I've heard it from and they are telling me this after the completion of the buyback. Anyway my experience was super easy and smooth.

We didn't need the bigger SUV right now so decided to get the 2015 Golf TDI. Its nice but defiantly not the quality that the Touareg had.

I opted for the fix as well but don't expect that they will release one. I'll get $28K for our '10, will probably roll that over into a newer Q5 TDI or potentially the new body style Q5 gas. I have to get some seat time in that platform before I make any decisions.

Here is more good info:


The deadline for submission of the emissions modification to EPA is November 10th. Since the 2,0L version has been customarily approved, I can't see how the 3.0L would not be as well.

Edit: I just did some digging and the modifications for nearly all 2.0Ls are fully approved. I they can fix the 2.0L without urea injection, the 3.0Ls should be an easy one with even less negative effects than the 2.0L.

Also interesting that the warranty extension (4 years or 87K kms) applies to just about everything powertrain including HPFP, injectors etc.
