Default VW Settlement in the US

Didn't see this posted anywhere...

https://www.yahoo.com/news/vw-resist...--finance.html

Quote:
BERLIN (Reuters) - Volkswagen has reached a deal with U.S. authorities to settle the case over its cheating of diesel emissions tests that would involve it paying each affected customer $5,000, Germany's Die Welt newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Citing unidentified sources close to the negotiations, Die Welt said the agreement would be presented on Thursday to Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco, avoiding a trial.
Original referenced article in case anyone is interested

I wonder if Canadian owners will receive 5k CAD cheques or 8k CAD cheques?

$5K covers the loss in residual value, barely, but will do nothing to compensate for the loss of power or fuel economy after the "fix"

Sorry I'm not following...what loss of power or fuel economy? I'm sure these cars will still out-perform 99% of the other vehicles out on the market in regards to fuel economy.

Until there is an official release of what is actually going to happen, I'm not beleiving anything the media reports. They will post whatever it takes to get a reaction out of the readers, irresponsible trash journalism.

We have no idea what VW has planned for these cars. For all anyone knows, they might be given emissions exemptions and never touched.

until we know firmly what is planned, we do what we always do...leap to conclusions and jump to assumptions. rumour and conjecture are us.

This is crazy, I wonder what the "buy back" offer will entail? I own a 2011 golf wagon tdi high line with 100,000kms. Wonder how much VW would offer to buy back this car from me for?
