Make another claim. Explain what happened, how much you received in tax refund and provide all supporting info like a copy of the VW cheque stub.

If you’re young enough you might see a resolution. Sounds like you got less than half of what you should have received.

Yes, I am thinking about this. If we can get the other money back, it would be a bonus. Actually the government finance guy asked the VW cheque stub in order to process our claim.

Just popped in to see if there was any news about an Ontario HST refund. Also, wondered what happened to my Gen 1 Golf, will it see a Canadian road again?

In Ontario, the government states very clearly on the web that you will be required to get the fix. They say only that they will "minimize the inconvenience." I guess you can try the "free man on the land" thing if you want, but in the end you are a slave who has to do whatever they say if you want to keep renewing your registration.

- the overall 'award' for each car doesn't change overtime, only over mileage.
I made two claims a week apart, the first for a buyback, the second for a trade on an Audi I was considering at the time.

The first offer was for $20050. The second, around $19000. Did not take long for me to order a new Toyota.

Must have been right on the edge of a mileage break point. But don't be an eager swallower of the "award doesn't change" patter. I could not have been more than 50 km beyond the step. We are talking about the same car here, there is no reason for it to drop in value by $1000 in a week.

I'm not joking. DO NOT MOVE TITLE. DO NOT.

If you are NOT the owner of record as of September 2015 you cannot get the buyback. You can only do the fix.

That said, if you were going to do the fix, you STILL lose half the sorry money if you didn't own the car back on September 18th 2015.

So, no DO NOT put the title in your name. Get him to process whatever option you want and get more money. WAY more.
holy **** i owe you a coffee, thank you so much

actually to update its a funny situation as I finally got hold of the paperwork.

My dad bought the car brand new in Nov 09 and put it under my name but he paid for it.

Then march 2011 he transferred it back to his name so he can use it and insure it.

Now when completing the forms online, there is a section if I needed a power of attorney to represent him. But it says if I'm just assisting him in doing the registration process, I don't think I need to check that option do I?

Sold my 2010 back yesterday, it was emotional for me, loved the car and it treated me perfectly for the past 8 years. I just couldn't say no, the offer was too good. Dealer manager said he thought my car would be going to "the shredder" despite being in great condition with only 105,000km.

Loved that car, great MPG, great practicality (sportwagen), ZERO issues in 8 years and most of all it was a blast to drive. For a young family with a gear head dad this was the perfect car for me. Sad to see it go, but, I think the void will be filled by my 2018 Alltrack 6mt on order! That car should fix the only issues I had with the Sportwagen, lack of ground clearance, and wanting for 4wd when going for biking or hiking "adventures".

That's the end of my TDI time, but certainly not the end of my VW time, I LOVE their cars.

If he is still capable of making his own decisions and signing the paperwork, you don't need POA.

You'd know if you needed POA because you would have gotten it long before this case. It's used when the person you have power over can no longer make those decisions either mentally or physically.

For those of you who did the "Buyback Trade in" of your TDI that still had outstanding years of coverage under the VW Mechanical Breakdown Extended Warranty, I am wondering how the dealer may or may not have 'compensated' you in the purchase of your replacement VW.
(I have read that the dealers can/will apply the pro rated amount towards the purchase of an extended warranty on the new purchase).
