Be prepared for your bank to put a hold on the funds though. It took mine ten business days to fully clear the buyback money.

^^^ Only if you choose a paper check instead of the EFT. Right?

I've never heard of a bank hold on EFT's, but maybe your bank is the first.

With EFT? Hasn't happened to me yet; all five have been 100% available on deposit (and Capital One, where the funds were sent, is notoriously slow in making funds available from transfers).

Oh wait, as I was writing my response, I remember that was the Bosch check. Not the VW EFT. Sorry for the confusion.

Ah, yes, that makes more sense--though even then, 10 days to clear a (at most) $1500 check seems excessive.

Question. I am looking at a 15 Jetta TDI S with 29k miles. I see that if you buy a used TDI from a VW dealer there is a 2 year 24k mile bumper to bumper. The dealer I am buying from is a non VW dealer and went to a large VW or Manheim auction and purchased over 100 of them. Is VW backing them with an additional warranty?

First. Only cpo get an extension on warranty.

Second, every fixed car has the 162k emissions warranty, that includes long block, and fuel plus emissions systems.

Well I went out and purchased a CPO 2015 Golf SE with Lighting package. 19,100 miles. 16899.00 and 1.49 APR. White on Black with 29 months and 40
k mile warranty in place.
Never thought I would be back in a TDI, but everything has worked out great. Guess I'm back in the club for at least 2 years.

I believe only the '15s get the 162K warranties, everything before that gets the reduced warranty.

I could be wrong.

my 'new' CPO 15 has been great so far. Seems we paid almost the same for nearly the exact same car, with nearly the same miles.

The MPG so far on mine has been nothing short of stellar according to the MFI.

Would have liked to but I couldn't find a CPO with the mileage, option, and condition I wanted in MT. Luckily I have a 14 GLI Edition 30 that is 6MT to drive when I am jonesing for it.

First calculation on my modified golf is in. 45 mpg per fuelly. That's better, or at least very close to the best tank I ever got in my gsw.

Modification doesn't seem to have a negative effect on economy. Power seems close, feels like they messed with DSG more than engine
