I'd really like to know where my 2011 Golf TDI ended up after the buyback. Is there a reliable link I can access to see the ultimate disposition of my Golf? I do know that it received the fix so it must have been sold to a new buyer. Thanks in advance.

Anyone else noticing a lot of Salvage Title TDIs coming up in their area? I picked up my 15 Golf a year ago and was online looking for a buddy and noticed quite a few salvage title cars, Jettas and Passats. Example of a recent find was a 13K Passat SE with 60K miles for $6500. (Has salvaged title.. Never been hit or an accident, Salvaged from Volkswagen’s law suit.)

Some of these look like pretty good deals if you don't mind having the salvage title.

This doesn't make sense. Fixed cars don't have a salvage title. And if I recall correctly repaired cars with salvage titles weren't eligible for the buyback.

Some cars gained a salvage title while in storage after the buyback waiting in the fix. Instead of taking a complete loss, VW sent them to auction where the small independent lots usually buy them.

Got it. But it has nothing to do with the buyback or fix, except it was those things that caused the car to be stored.

Hi there, first post. Bought my '14 Passat SEL CPO with 39k miles for 14,250.

Being CPO they did quite a bit to it including replacing front brakes, heater core, replaced 1 mismatched tire, Trunk damper, 40k service, replacement start button (sticker peeling) and a few other misc stuff.

I saw probably 20 TDIs across 4 dealerships and only 2 met my expectations. It was fairly obvious that the majority that were turned back over to VW were likely problem vehicles for the owners or they didn't take care of them and saw it as an out.

The one I got though I'm very happy with it. Outside of a few very minor dings it's in great physical shape and seems sound mechanically. (so far) Was the exact color combo I wanted too (white/black)

CPO 2 year warranty with the 4/48 powertrain is the only way I would buy one of these.

Yes, and then VW puts out an insurance claim on them which is how they get their salvage title when sold at auction.

Picked up my 2011 Golf TDI 6MT with 52,000 miles for $8,500.
DieselGeek short throw shifter and 2micron return filter kit already installed.

Found the original owner from a hit & run accident report that was filed.
Cool dude that told me the history of the car, gave me some solid advise and gave me a heck of a deal on the Weather Tech floor mats he pulled out before the buyback.

Yeah there was a ton with hail damage that I found when looking. If you don’t mind some cosmetic issues you can find some really low mile cars. Some dealers still are asking ridiculously high prices IMO for some.

Interesting: so you reached out to the previous owner? In the owners manual of my 2015 wagon is some paperwork with the previous owners information. Name, address, email address, DOB even.

I was tempted to reach out to him but refrained because it seemed kind of odd/creepy. idk
