I'm gonna say 10% chance of success or less.

I'm thinking VW's approch will be that if you were actually "harmed" by the emissions cheating was personally affected by it, you wouldn't be gaming the system to milk it for every red cent you could. I know life is busy and things get in the way.

But, like i said at least when the people get the fix, they will be gaming the warranty and that extra 5K miles they milked out of it.

I wasn't milking anything! I would've happily done it early if I had known about the deadline. As I said in my previous post, the only direct communication I got from VW didn't mention the deadline.

And VW doesn't independently decide on the outcome of the appeal. There is a member from VW, a member representing the consumers, and a neutral member to break ties. Since none of us are privy to the inner workings of this elite secret committee , I don't think there's any way to know how they will decide. I'm not losing any sleep over it either way, but having a chance for an extra two grand would be nice.

That seems likely. If someone has already gone in and done the first part, it seems fair of them to assume you were going to do the second part in time. Good luck with your appeal.

Edit: it says the deadline in more places, so you are working uphill here. On the website it said so: https://web.archive.org/web/20181202...lement.com/en/

"IMPORTANT: You must complete your Buyback/AEM/Early Lease Termination or restitution-only claim and remedy by December 30, 2018 to receive benefits."

Edit2: it's also in the long form notice. Can't link from mobile but the deadline is right under the section about filing a claim.

Yeah, after I did Phase One I figured I was locked in to getting Phase Two with the restitution payment, so I never went back to check my status. At this point I'm pretty much expecting to NOT win the appeal, but who knows, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised!

Better find a Holiday Inn and keep your fingers crossed! Your odds aren't good as the word has been spread far and wide (legally speaking). I just shredded a debit card that I didn't recognize and thought was an unsolicited one. Turned out it was a rebate card I had been waiting for, for 8 weeks now and is unable to be replaced. I am out the money with no appeals..

If you bought it via carvana, there's no more money left on the table. Enjoy your new jetta and motor on!

Curious as to why you say "bought via varvana" as though if he bought it elsewhere he could apply for compensation. I thought after 12/31/18 the 2 liter settlement was done, too late, no money.

All of the relevant deadlines have LONG since passed.

If the car has had the "fix" applied - there should be stickers under the hood indicating thus - then you have an extended warranty on the emission control system including the fuel injection pump (expensive, and a problem area).

If it has not had the "fix" applied, you can pay a visit to your local VW dealer and have it done. You will not get any $ out of the deal, but you will get the above-mentioned warranty extension.

Yup, the gravy train has left the station. Highly unlikely the fix hasn't already been done to the car, but worth a look.

Agreed the VW has closed it'd wallet. It was just a way to determine the fix has been applied, as the chances carvana bought it at auction with the fix applied from VW is near 100%.

You have multiple posts on this. You aren't due any money but do have an extended emissions warranty that covers quite a bit of stuff for quite some time. Read the paperwork on it. Posted here a vast number of times.

Didn't forget, but waited until the last minute only to find the website was down on Sep. 1st. Had to fax it in, go through the appeals process with the CRC and now finally after all that getting an offer now and waiting to schedule the appointment.

Long road, but it's still paying off!
