I thought of keeping my TDI because I was getting fantastic mileage(58MPG-HWY) or close to 1400kms per 59L tank. Then I figured, if I can get a newer TDI by 1 or 2 years with lesser mileage and come away with out a car loan(straight Swap), I might consider that. Just my thoughts...

Yes. It's not an issue as long as the car runs. And it has been discussed approximately 1500 times before. (Look around a bit. Search, maybe ...)

Default Thanks GoFaster

I read through that thread you sent and you seem very positive it will not affect the buyback with trade...

The thread is not supper clear on that point lol

But you are from the GTA and I will trust ya. Did you return car with delete? or any close friends?

Thanks again

John

I would trust him as he is the moderator, or maybe he owes you supper, or a lunch if he's wrong.

...and this isn't supposed to be a discussion thread, it's supposed to be a lessons learned/tips thread.

^ Those numbers don't look even remotely correct.

Those numbers are completely wrong... I turned in a 2012 Golf with 169,000 miles in February and got almost $18,000...

Use the calculator posted earlier in this thread to determine the correct numbers for buyback.

Don't waste time looking for an appointment within 2 weeks of the final offer, apparently the process builds in a mandatory 2 week period according to a nice lady at VW claims.

That explains the limited available dates offered. BTW, taking our 13 SEL in a week from today for the buyback. Already picked up a 15 SEL with the lease discount to be paid off with the buyback check. Love the 15 and consider it much evolved from the 13 and love the EA288 engine with it's almost nonexistent turbo lag.

Regarding operability: my Passat buyback was simply started and the agent rev'd the engine in Park and took a photo of it around 3k rpms. Never moved the car while we were there.
Clean car, with no damage though.

Thanks so much for your advice on the buyback appointment. you had some really good reminders in there.
I was also wondering if anyone received their final offer papers with one buyback amount and then a 2nd email confirming the appointment date that had an increased buyback offer in it? nothing to do with mileage either just 2 different buyback quotes.
