Some dealers didn't want to mess with doing this unless you paid top dollar early on to get it back. Several people have posted on this exact thing.

It was a deal considering i only paid $23K brand new traded in a couple of cars outright for it and drove it for 3 years before turning it in and getting $24600.

Found it with only a couple hundred extra miles than i turned it in with and paid $13K.

My wife and I snagged a beautiful, well cared for 2013 white JSW that had always lived in Texas. I presumed the original owner was happily driving something newer with the $$$ they received. We briefly looked at another white JSW the same dealer had, it had a shredded driver front tire in the cargo area, had a flat spare on it, and looked like someone took it off-roading before they turned it in. Did that one belong to one of you? I was tempted to low-ball them on that one and see what happens. (Glad I didn't, I just got a 2019 e-Golf because my 1.5mi commute was not the right duty cycle for a TDI engine...)

'90 Corrado_G60 Pkg_2 5spd (4 fun) Supercharged and half the fuel economy of a TDI!

I regularly searched for my VIN and about 6 weeks after the buy back I found the car for sale in Ohio. My turn-in was in Connecticut. I was surprised how little they were asking - $14,900 and they paid me around $34,000.

Where are you looking this up? I would like to see where mine disappeared to. 2011 w/ about 50k miles and in damn fine shape. I'm sure it made it back to a lot somewhere.

F to pay respects. RIP

I know mine is out and about because I got sent to collections for a parking ticket on it. No idea how they got my address and it was at least easy to clean up. It still has not gone out for sale, even though the modification has been completed.
