Default Still waiting for my money

There is no end to the frustration with VW and their buyback program. I returned by 2010 GSW on the 25th of Sept. As I missed my original appointment date they said I would receive my check by mail within 7-15 days. Well it's been 20 days and all I've received is $14.00. Anyone else had to wait for a check and how long did it take?

Lawyer up.

But seriously.... you just left your car at the dealer without a check? You 'sold' it to them without getting paid?

If anything like that happens at my buyback, I'm hopping in the car and driving it home. no way would I leave a $27,000 asset in their hands without getting remuneration.

Interestingly, the clause about "conflicts being resolved in favor of the consumer" isn't present in the Canadian language.

It's a minor thing that likely won't amount to much. Unless it does.
It's almost like it's two completely different countries with different consumer protection laws and consumer rights...

Weird eh?

The implication being that said wording isn't required in Canada?

Or they are more able to screw over the consumer?

IANAL, however in a court of law, any uncertainty in a contract generally favors the party who did not write it.

Having said that, how many people are going to take VW Canada to court, especially when you're having issues at the dealership level? Clarity would have been worth far more at that point obviously, and your later guess is almost certainly the correct one.
