Default First responce from EPA /Same old story but at least they are getting it

Dear xxxxxxxxx
The EPA is not managing the buyback program. We refer questions about the buyback program to the class counsel, who is handling issues with buyback logistics. I suggest you contact them at Class Counsel Email: info@vwclasscounsel.com or Class Counsel Phone: 1-800-948-2181.

I send you the information below in hopes that it helps add clarity to your situation. Your vehicle title may not contain any of the labels below, but I do hope this information is helpful.

Under the 2.0 Liter Settlement Agreement, a vehicle must be “operable” in order to qualify as an “eligible vehicle”. A vehicle is not “operable” if it had a branded title of, among other things, “Salvaged” as of September 18, 2015, and was acquired by any person or entity from a junkyard or salvaged after September 18, 2015. I have included relevant language from Appendix A to the consent decree below as well as a link to the EPA’s settlement if you wish to review it.

From Appendix A of the 2.0 Liter Settlement (First Partial Consent Decree):

2.8 “Eligible Vehicle” means any 2.0 Liter Subject Vehicle that is: (1) listed in the table immediately below this Paragraph; (2) registered with a state Department of Motor Vehicles or equivalent agency or held by a dealer not affiliated with Settling Defendants and located in the United States as of June 28, 2016; and (3) Operable as of the date the vehicle is brought in for the Buyback, the Lease Termination, or Approved Emissions Modification.

2.10 “Operable” means that a vehicle so described can be driven under its own 2.0-liter TDI engine power. A vehicle is not Operable if it had a branded title of “Assembled,” “Dismantled,” “Flood,” “Junk,” “Rebuilt,” “Reconstructed,” or “Salvaged” as of September 18, 2015, and was acquired by any person or entity from a junkyard or salvaged after September 18, 2015.

A copy of the EPA’s settlement can be found here: https://www.epa.gov/enforcement/thir...consent-decree.

Sincerely,

Brianna Iddings

The response is somewhat non sequitur but at least they had to read it. We're not asking for better management of the program, we want our claims processed.

The whole point of this is to have a voice, be noticed with all involved in the settlement process. If emails are sent to the appropriate agencies we are getting responses, not the ones we may want right now but its on record.

Here are the emails addresses of all, just write a quick note advise you are delayed and updates are not accurate or provided, anything is better than nothing.
