Wonderful! They offer to ram you even deeper, and someone actually considers that a solution? Amazing . . . .

Consider this: There is no legal requirement to take the fix. They are also required to continue to service unfixed cars (and cannot mandate the fix to get service) . . . a couple of facts that I think we can all agree on.

Am I the only one that has noticed, that because of that, that ECU, TCM's, etc. must then obviously be stocked in pre-fix configurations? Thus making this entire issue as simple as dropping in one or two modules that they clearly have?

Something just doesn't make a lot of sense on this . . .

This is a technical hiccup.

it is not rape.

you trivialize sexual assault by such casual use of the term.

and just in case there is any further discussion, know that there is an option on this site's User CP to edit a per-user ignore list. I have added tadawson to my list, since I have seen nothing he has posted of any interest.
I apologize if my being open and honest offends you. Both are a personal violation against the victim's will, so to me, the term fits . . . Myself, I prefer open to PC any day, and will not degrade myself with the PC agenda . . . sorry . . .

Based off what I have seen, we have five members that are affected by this issue, in the sense that their cars are currently bricked:
- meerschm
- mpriolo
- Woza
- Howie09TDI?
- Myself
And one member who has requested the fix and been turned down due to the issue at appointment:
- adrienne
Am I missing anybody in either category? If so, please DM me!
I am going to be reaching out to you in a private group message (or individually, if this system doesn't allow for direct group messages) with some information from the plaintiff lawyers I have spoken with.
Just post it!

Like lightflyer wrote, Meg8 you have no knowledge of how many of us are lurking here trying to decide to turn it in, go for the fix or just ignore it all.

****show.


Everything summed up in one word!

I'm sorry there are people negatively affected by this issue. These owners purchased a specific car, for a specific reason. VWOA should do their best to put them in a reasonably similar car to the one(s) they are holding hostage.

I suggest that everyone keep copius notes and record the name of every person, every call and every tidbit they receive from anyone associated with VW. I would be calling once a week, the squeeky wheel get the grease.

Apologizing for elevating your torment to the level of actual rape victims torment and then taking it back and stating you won't be political or correct about it. You make no sense.

First, I didn't take anything back. It was more of a cynical comment about how the PC crowd can't deal with open, honest, and free expression of opinion . . .
