I love my 2012 golf TDI with the 6 speed manual. The only thing I don't love about it and reason to have it bought back instead of being fixed is because of the HPFP issue. If that was not a common problem, I would want to keep this car for a long long time.

That being said, I am looking for another diesel either hatch back or wagon which does not have the HPFP issue. I was wanting the bmw 328d xdrive but read someone on here that has one had his HPFP go out at 20 or 30k miles.

I'm mainly looking for mileage which is why I drive this car over my truck and since I tow a small trailer almost every weekend when I go riding then I would like a diesel. Any suggestions on something without a major issue like the HPFP?

I wish I could keep my '11 TDI 6mt, but honestly, this thing is built like junk. Rattles, never know if the AC is going to work or not, door locks that sometimes work, sometimes don't. All with just under 90k miles. My old '00 Jetta was going strong at over 200k.

Honestly, I would love to get a Mk4 5m with AC. I would pay $5k for one if it was well maintained, good int/ext, etc. Good mpg, can tow my kayaks easily... Dreams :/

If you think VW is going to give us a "sweet" deal, yall are crazy. I paid $17k w/ 64k miles June of last year. Now, people are giving them away for $11k. I expect for VW to say, at best... value is $13.5, plus we will give you $1500. $2500 if you buy a VW from us.

ibsam, good MKIVs are out there. And good project cars, too. I'm picking up my '99.5 Golf from the paint shop tomorrow. Because that car is replacing my '12 Golf, which I sold a year ago.

I got my 13 Golf last August and I've loved the car so far. I told myself last summer that my next car will be German and it will be diesel after reading that Audi set a new world record for going 1148 miles on a single tank of fuel.
So far only one issue with the intercooler freezing during the winter... dealer couldnt find the problem.
I've always loved VW and the Golf, and given that this was one of the last years it was built in Germany, I don't want to give it up that early. But if there would be a deal from VW (We'll see next week) that would make it stupid not to act upon, then I'd like to get into a Audi A4 Avant/Allroad or a mk7 GTI. I think I'll be a German car guy for life given the handling and qualities that German cars have over American or Asian makes.

Right now, depending on how the numbers work out, I'll likely trade to a 2016 Passat SEL or SEL Premium. I will be looking at fully loaded Sonata Hybrid too. I was thinking I would move to a midsize SUV, but fuel mileage is still important to me, and I still need a big car/big back seat room. Main reason to trade is get the latest safety stuff - lots of crazy driver out there!

No 2016 TDIs if you want a diesel. 2017s look likely.

Just wanted to chime in here fellas. I'm from canada, the Toronto area; I got into a 15 Passat tdi SEL( Highline in Canada), and my vehicle is leased. I'm somewhat confused, as I thought from what I've been reading every now and then is that the newer tdi models with the EA288 version diesel isn't as problematic as the older versions. It's basically the cars that don't have ad blue tanks or urea injection that would be the ones receiving compensations with different options such as buy backs, repairs, ect. I was told my car would probably only require a software update only ? Is this correct ? Or does my vehicle fall into the whole damn lot ? I guess I'll find out in 3 days...as for a replacement vehicle , I'm not really sure, I agree that the newer Jetta is put together very cheaply., my compliments to the folks who build the Passats in Chatanooga, Tenn., very well built and solid. Have to wait and see....

watched Motorweek/Cars.com test of mid size sedans, criteria a little confusing but the Passat was the winner. ( one can check it out on Cars.com site0

We're thinking of moving up a size if the settlement makes it worth while.( now '11 Jetta tdi MT)

I've been thinking Mazda6/MT but I gotta believe a Passat deal will be sweeter ( not sure if MT available).

As far as anyone knows, you're in the mix. As to how far, or what the outcome is going to be for each model / model year, no one knows yet. It's quite likely we will know more on Tuesday. For Canada, YMMV......
