Default Gen 1 TDI fix receives EPA approval

From VW:

Today, Volkswagen received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) for an emissions modification for affected Model Year 2009-2014 2.0L TDI vehicles with Generation 1 engines in connection with our settlement program. This includes the following vehicles:

VW Jetta TDI (Model Years 2009-2014)
VW Jetta SportWagen TDI (Model Years 2009-2014)
VW Golf TDI (Model Years 2010-2014)
VW Beetle TDI and VW Beetle Convertible TDI (Model Years 2012-2014)
Audi A3 TDI (2010-2013)

This modification has only been approved for customer owned or leased vehicles that remain in their possession. For clarity, the approval has not been provided for vehicles in VWGoA or dealer inventory for purposes of resale. In the coming weeks we will update you on the status of the availability of previously bought back vehicles for purchase and resale as well as the process for selling any remaining new dealer stock.


Good news.

Doesn't sound too brutal on the hardware side:

The fix includes software changes, but there are hardware changes as well. The original emissions modification agreement specified that Generation One 2.0L TDI models require a new exhaust flap, exhaust gas recirculation filter, and NOx trap, or other hardware that could complete the same function. New diagnostic functions to ensure that the new hardware is functional are also required.

Great news! I'm sure more than a few folks will be kicking themselves for taking the buyback option prematurely.

*Kicking myself*

But I also had the APR Stage 1 tune and live in a state with emissions testing (ie. no snip snip). I can't imagine the current APR software would work reliably on a post-fix TDI and don't see them, or other tuners, spending time to create a post-fix tune.

Huh? They won't be any harder to tune post fix then they ever were. Maybe Malone will finally release their stage 4 kit now. Fingers crossed!

Exactly what I have been waiting for. Get fix, collect compensation, use compensation for tune and associated parts, drive it till the wheels fall off. It's a good day!

If that's the case, then *thumbs up*. I was thinking with so many less on the road that they wouldn't spend any R&D time to fix their tune to work with the new hardware/software updates.

If they do, I just might try to track down my bought-back TDI and buy it for a second time!

Nope. $18.5k after 7yrs, 195k km = a new Outback and the wife is happy.

Can't speak for APR but...

News flash: we are already tuning post-fix cars and the gen 1 cars will not be any different. Those are our bread and butter for the coming years so you better believe we will support them with tuning and go-fast parts. Time to dust off the projects that have been in the wings...

108,000 miles on my 2010 JSW. Sold for almost $16,000

Bought a 2015 GSW with 14,000 miles for $18,300

$2,300 to upgrade (and it is a nice upgrade) as well as a fairly new car. I was about to drop a few thousand $ on maintenance (DSG, timing belt...) of the $5100 I would have got.

No regrets and I got a sweet deal

Sweet. I'm in no rush, kinda feel like I should put another 50k on the gtd turbo before upgrading again.

Very good news.
By the time the dust settles I suspect I will have about $16k CDN invested in my near pristine low mileage 2010 GSW c/w Containflo, Pureflo, Bilsteins and HID's, the mods purchased at lower pricing courtesy of Dieselgate.

Now on to the soundproofing, skid plate..., maybe I should have picked up that CR190 turbo and 3" exhaust��
