Check out the thread on Club Touareg. All sorts of info on there and yes there have been a few on that forum who sold theirs back. I am awaiting the fix and money to keep it.

8/25/17 was some sort of goal date for VW. They were expected to have a gen. 1 modification submitted by then. I've heard nothing.

SOLD! The wife's Touareg had 250,000+ miles when we sold it back to VW. Payout was just a little above $18,000. We did a trade and picked up a 2018 Tiguan SE. It's a nice vehicle, but in the wife's words, "it's not a Touareg". Perhaps we should have opted for the SEL to get some luxury features she had grown used to. Couldn't see putting down $60 K for a Touareg gasser.

Just to rub salt in the wound... A friend of mine just picked up a 15 Q7 TDi with around 10k on it. Paid around $50 and got around $18k for his Acura MDX, so ~$32 plus tax, tag, crap...

I signed up for the fix,will get 10,500 after fix. Now the waiting game begins. Time will tell when or if they fix these cars. Mine only has 52k miles,so it is basically new.

Ten grand back in the bank is tempting but WAIT until you hear how others get on with the fix [if it ever comes!].

There are a lot of complaints about the 2.0 Tdi fix, especially those with auto boxes where the so-called fix beggars up the gear changes and low speed cruising with more diesel noise and poorer fuel consumption to add insult to injury.

VW sent a message that they will contact me when the fix is available. I'm not in any hurry. I still can't find anything i want to replace it with like the VW Treg TDI. As far as the fix goes, reports on the gen 2 seems ok so far. I may try to buy a 2016 TDI,if things work out.

my thoughts exactly. The more I look for a replacement vehicle, the more I realize how great the Touareg is. I'm even contemplating the "opt out/do nothing" position if a partial fix isn't approved.

I just talked with VW yesterday inquiring about the timeline on the software fix. The gal I spoke with was very upfront and she stated VW is having a hard time getting the EPA/CARB to accept VW's fix for the Gen 1 Touareg's. She stated that the decision will be made in November. She also told me that IF the software fix is not accepted, then one will have to go to the buy back / trade - in / or do nothing options.

My guess is because they are resolved to the fact that it cannot be repaired properly. Why else would they have initially opened up the buyback without a waiting period like they have for the Gen II?

It's all in the documents filed with the EPA and CARB - You guys should really read this stuff. Right out of the blocks, VW was clear that they could not bring the Gen 1 3.0L up to actual requirements that they were certified to(Tier 1 Bin 5). They said they could for Gen 2. There was no buy back for gen 2s because they thought they could meet the requirement (and they did). They were compelled to offer a buy back on anything that they cannot bring up to the level they were certified at.

EPA signed off many months ago on them modifying gen 1.1s (2009-2010) to tier 1 bin 7 and 1.2 (2011-2012) to tier 1 bin 6 (with a cash payout to compensate for the owners getting sold something that was not as advertised). There is also a buy back option since technically your LEV isn't so LEV anymore.

With the announcement of a Gen 1 2.0 TDI fix (with no urea) I am confident that the fix on the gen 1 3.0 will be an increase in DEF usage, different programming and an extended warranty on all of the emissions equip.

Read the govt docs, not the internet!

Edit - And don't believe a word VW customer service tells you!
