Default 2015 TDI Sportwagen your 2 cents please

First off I live in California. A state that does have some of the strictest restrictions on anything that runs on carbon fuel. After months of submitting my paper work and waiting for my approval...online chat with VW told me this morning to wait about another week to hear from the auditors on my proposal to keep my vehicle. I am the original owner too. I do love my car. I bought it for the mpg and longevity of diesel motors too. I do know three mechanics that deal in new technology and they have been my mentors on " is this a good deal " They all agreed for what its worth if I decide to keep it, I am not making a poor choice. It seems to me that because I live in California my repairs are stuck in limbo or it could just be me. I submitted mine back in December I believe or could have been January. I am going to the VW dealer today to go "look" at a 2107 VW GTI sports version...4 door. I like the mpg ( decent ) but I lose the diesel aspect of my options in getting a vehicle. No I do not want some other vendors diesel. I love VW'S. Did anyone have second thoughts after they kept theirs and did anyone wish they did dump theirs after all was said and done. I am afraid in the years to come that this state will impose much stricter SMOG regulations on these " fixed " vehicles. Any comments....thank you.

we have no regrets whatsoever about keeping our '15 GSW TDI S w/DSG... and the Phase 1 Emissions Modification has had little, if any, effect on performance and mileage (we still don't know about DEF consumption, although some folks report that it increases about 15%)

you have purchased a bargain vehicle - think about it: a high-performing, fuel-efficient diesel station wagon for $18,500 new (considering the settlement money)... the only alternative for the same type of vehicle in diesel is a BMW diesel wagon that *starts* at $45,000!!!!

we love out wagen and we're going to drive the wheels off it...

on the 'smile with every VW mile' Gulf of Mexico

p.s. the federal settlement over-rides any eco-tardism by the Kalifornicators

I really like my 15 GSW TDI. I was going to do the buyback because the offer was almost 3k more than I paid, but after months of looking for a replacement I called VW this weekend and had my claim reset so I could opt to keep it and get the fix. The uncertainty of a fix was why I went the buyback route in the first place. So far everyone seems happy with it, so I am getting it and keeping this car. Everything else I looked at as a replacement was either more expensive or I just didn't like the car as much. I'm happy with my decision to keep it.

We kept our 15 Golf Manual 6. Got the Phase 1 done last week and no difference as far as we can tell. The payout on the modification phases coupled with the extended warranty sealed the deal. Never had a concern about the vehicle itself (we really like it) and couldn't find a vehicle that we liked better for the buyback price.

I have no regrets in keeping mine and getting the emission fix done. I have not noticed any difference in how it drives. And so far I have got around $5600 back from VW. Which helps to pay it off early and with an extended warranty on certain parts, it was an easy decision.
