Default 2013 Passat 6M Buyback Black Hole

Is there something different about the Dieselgate fixes on the 13-15 Passat TDI's. My daughter's 13 Passat manual transmission car was a buyback car that still appears to just be sitting wherever VW put these things. I'm trying to figure out why it hasn't been resold.

It won't be. It will be crushed.

There is not an emissions fix for the 13-14 manual Passats (only the DSGs).
2015 Passats have a fix for manual and DSGs.

I'd be surprised if it hasn't been squashed already. Someone might not have bothered with some paperwork.

I sold my 2014 6-MT Passat back to VW in Jan of 2018. I did a VIN search a year later and found out it was crushed in June of 2018.

I did manage to find & buy one of the few 2015 6-MT Passats!
