For the owners who chose to do nothing (and get nothing - no compensation without a fix) - Nothing. Still on the road.

For the ones that were bought back - with no fix, at this point, VW has no choice but to scrap them.

There's no fix, but is VWOA buying them back?

Yes, they have to per the settlement. The vast majority of those cars were sold back and will be/have been crushed.

The ones people keep: nothing. The ones they buy back: crushed. Probably few enough of them that Volkswagen doesn't want to keep spending money to develop a fix.

To add: they were. The deadlines are all in the past at this point. Only the 3.0s are still being bought back.

2.0L buyback deadline is December 30, 2018 (although filling deadlines etc. are all in the past - except for CRC Appeals, which is January 13, 2019).

That was what I meant, though I did not say it clearly. Either you are already scheduled for a buyback or it's too late.

I just bought an emissions-modified, 25k miles, 2014 sportwagen TDI from a dealer in Alexandria, VA which has several on its lot. VWoA offered great extended emissions warranty.

Also, several times in the last few months I've seen car carrier trailers on the interstate loaded up with TDIs.
