Since my VIN was registered, they told the local dealership (Sunset) that they would not grant good will to fix my car ($7800 or 30% of its buy back value). Sunset then started closing doors on me. They offered me their $25 rental rate at enterprise, which I used for two months. They offered to "make sure your car gets on that buy back truck" and they offered me 100% financing on a new vehicle (since I needed the trade in value of the car to get a new one).
But there's no offer yet, and I'm going into month 3 off the road. I really believe that VW and their dealerships OUGHT TO DISCLOSE the HPFP failure risk. Many 2013+ Passats are failing (google it) and we're all left out here.
In the meantime, I am off the road, racking up expenses and no one will "do the right thing," which would be to fix my car on their dime since they did not disclose!
That's why you research before buying a car.

Another PizzaGate conspiracy nutjob. We will all be living like China with our charcoal facemasks as foreshadowed by Trump's EPA pick.

That's because its easy to cherry pick data to support your position. This is happening on BOTH SIDES.

With that said, I think the EPA needs to give diesels more room on NOx and PM as they produce much less HCs and CO than gassers. Like almost 0.

But that's using logic, something that seems to be going away with every generation.

None of the climate change issues can be proven, they're all derived from models that have humans with an agenda on the back end.

Besides, I give mother nature a lot more credit, you can look anywhere and see where our built environment is attacked by nature. We have roads decaying because of nature, buildings that need perpetual maintenance because of nature. Nature is a lot more robust than any of the climate change believers want to admit.

As for surface temps, well I think maybe there's something new here.



The problem I have with all this climate change nonsense is that we have no baseline for anything, it's all made up. The earth has never been in a steady state, it goes through natural changes all by itself, so when something changes people freak out and point to emissions or something that man has done when I seriously doubt that man is strong enough to destroy nature through our casual existence.

Seriously folks, Al Gore (etc) has made a mountain of money peddling this fiction, get over it.

As for the emission standards, I think we have bureaucrats deciding what emission levels should be and they probably don't really know how that impacts business. What I do know though is if government takes out business because of some flawed models about how we're destroying the planet that your paycheck will probably disappear. Now that's what I would be really worried about, losing a paycheck because of some bureaucrat and an overzealous govt agency.

And as someone else mentioned way back on page 1, don't tell the Mk3/Mk4/B4 owners that diesel is going away because for those owners the scandal means very little.

You believe that all the weather and temp data we have from the last couple of hundred years is all made up?

A couple of hundred years don't add up to a pimple on a dinosaur's ass.

By the way, what happened to those dinosaurs anyway? Too much Co2? NOx? Maybe the cave man's open burning?

Polar ice core studies reveal an oscillating pattern of temperature data over the last 400,000 years. 200 yrs may reveal a trend over the near term, but that's about it. Global warming/climate change is a political agenda whose most likely purpose is the redistribution of wealth and consolidation of power in the hands of a few.
Scientists can prove which ever side of the equation we choose to fund.

It's like I was telling my kids: There'd be less climate change if there were fewer people!

I think we are still suffering from manifest destiny in this country. God gave us all these wonderful natural resources, therefore we should burn them up just as fast as possible. Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

Well, how fast is too fast?

Plus, we have lots of coal left too, which is also a natural resource.

I don't know the answer to that. I just want a livable planet for my grandkids and their offspring.
