Absolutely. That concept has worked well for Apple and Microsoft.

Have they announced this site as being live for uploads? Working out the kinks, no complaints from me, uploaded success the other day and haven't felt the need to go back.

So to sum it all up, my complaints are as follows,

1. VW cheated and sold me a lie.
2. VW has not communicated any info on great deals to keep me.
3. Local dealers are incompetent at sales and or lying as dealers often do.

I can download consent form but on my chromebook when you hit print it only give the option to save. If you safe it then try to print it still comes up with save option only????

I saved it and then opened it and printed it. Try attaching it to an e-mail and mailing it to yourself. Open it on another computer and print it from there.

Just did mine using Windows 10. Chrome didn't work ( had issues downloading the PDF consent form)...had to use Edge.

If it messes up..press F5.

FYI the consent form is if you have a loan...especially if not via VW.

The consent form is only needed if you have a loan on the car.

Btw... isn't it still a bit early for them to be so confident? I mean the settlement isn't finalized until late October. That's over a month away.
