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:

https://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/vw_info/vw_faq_3liter.htm

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.

Do I have to go to a VW dealer for buyback? Could I go to Audi? What if the dealer sells both? Could I trade my Touareg TDI in for an Audi Q5/Q7 or Cayenne?

I guess as long as you keep your mileage within the stated level your car can eventually be bgt back at the stated price when you filed your claim. Keep driving the car till the bitter end,it's basically a free car now. Fix would be the best,but your fall back is they have to buy it back if there is no fix. Way better than the gen2 and gen 3 where there is only a fix and restitution money.

I just got the number for my 2011 with 100K miles, $36,276. I love my Touareg but will be taking the buyback at the end of February.

My 2012 Touareg TDI Sport w/ Nav at 52k is estimated at $46k for buyback. I plan on doing it, but not sure when. Next Summer of Fall maybe. I love this car and I am sad that I have to turn it in.

correction...you're sad you are choosing to sell it back. No one has a gun to you're head

Nope. With the increased diesel prices/tax here in CA, and the possibility of worse mileage with the fix, it makes no sense to keep it...

I may try to buy a 2016 TDI after the fix if the car has reasonable performance and trade my 2012 lux for a bunch of money. Problem I have read is the fix screws up the mileage and pickup. We'll have to see. I don't have to worry about an emissions test,so I could possibly do a tune and get the original performance.
