Glad it's over. I was a little disgusted with the dealership though.

It was quite visibly obvious how dealership staff were 'studiously ignoring' me. They had the buyback agent stuck at a small table as far away from everyone as possible and ironically there was a "clean diesel" poster still flying on the divider behind him. The court appointed agent was very nice and efficient and I was done in no time but when I stood up and asked in a voice that could be overheard, "isn't anyone from this dealership going to look me in the eye and offer an apology for what this company has done to us?" He just shrugged and shook his head. When I looked around the room everyone had their head down as if they were so immersed in their work. It looked to me like a pack of dogs with tails between their legs.
Very petty behaviour from the dealer's personnel. Although, in all fairness, they were cheated as well by greedy corporate decisions.

I have my return scheduled for this Saturday. Hope that everything goes smoothly.

From what I've read the dealership staff are not permitted to approach anyone who is there for a buyback unless that person approaches them directly.

Not really true across the board .... the dealership people will be there to help the appointed person to receive the car from you ... as we all as strip the plates.

It's not as strict as one might think. Although, I am sure the experiences can wildly differ depending on a dealer.

if you take your Rice Point cheque into the bank to deposit it, a hold will apply, subject to normal bank rules and policies. One thing you can do to get around a hold is deposit the funds to a credit line if you have one and then transfer funds into whatever account you want, if you have credit line room, a hold won't effect you.
Happy things worked out in your situation NSTDI. Please don't talk $hite here when you don't have the facts. VW owners:
-confirm with the dealer's office manager (not just your rep) if you can endorse your settlement cheque towards trade-in (new or used)
-if you're not satisfied w/ the answer above, inquire why, and ask what the dealer's bank policy as that's what's driving the ultimate decision
-take necessary steps based on this feedback to lineup your financing options
-ensure your terms are in writing in the "offer to purchase" contract not just verbal
Good luck everyone...

There are reported examples of CDN dealers not accepting endorsed cheques. Just because one, two or several dealers accept endorsed cheques does NOT mean they all will.... so let's make best decisions based on facts - bank/financial institution policy drives financing options available to owners in the buy-back trade-in scenario... end of. G/luck everyone

Is anybody here still trying to go in for the Gen 1 fix? Seems they're getting appointments in the US but nothing yet for Canada.

Default Nothing but BS from VW

What a bunch of a**holes. I have sent them photocopies of my registration 5 times and they claim they are all illegible. Last time was an 11x14 photo that I mailed to them. Once this nightmare is over I will send a letter to the Attorney General of Ontario and inform them of the shenanigans going on. I'm sure there are others with the same problem.

This will take a little time as VW Canada is busy translating the gen 1 fix info into French in order for Dept of Transport Canada to rubber stamp it.

I must say, my process went extremely well. My appointment started almost 1 hour later than scheduled but, the Ricepoint Rep kept apologizing over and over. I got all worked up over nothing; I was a little uneasy because it was an Early Lease Termination...it all went down smoothly, no inspection whatsoever !! Just an odometer check and VIN # check...that's all she wrote.
