Default Adjustments...

I keep reading adjustments are only based on the mileage.

So, quick question: If I were to keep my spare tire and jack... no price adjustment?

There is no price adjustment for condition or equipment (other than the specific options listed in the tables). There is only the decision of whether to accept the car or not. If your buyback rep is especially anal, they might refuse to take your car at all.

I took it out of every car I turned. I took tire infiltrators and cargo covers from Q7s as well... And only 1 key for most cars. No one cares

Don't do the buyback without getting the check at the dealership!!! I turned my car in 10 February 2017. NO MONEY to me yet. I have worked for 7 weeks with VW counsel and still nothing but a run around.

I'm sorry that you've had trouble getting your payment, but your experience is not representative of the tens of thousands of people who've received EFT payments without issues.

Dan Thanks I did get the eft for 1 car but not the second. And I have read many horror stories right here. So it is plenty common.

Question please

Was there any issues(or differences) between car number 1 and car number 2 ? ~~ besides one was a *check* and the other was a etf ?

Did VW give you any reason why they are not paying on car number 2 ?

Anyway best of luck for you.

No difference between either car or what was requested when turned in at the same time. The bank is pointing the finger at vw and vw is pointing the finger at the bank. But the bank has show me the cancelled check sent to VW and a copy of the title that they sent vw. All I know is VW has the car cash and title. After working with vw counsel for 7 weeks now I'm very frustrated at the lack of concern from vw.

VW has provided ZERO reason other than they are still researching the issue.

I have not a clue where you should-can go from here.

Just wishing you all the best of luck

The cancelled check is weird

As I will be doing the *fix* and prefer the check (because I want to make a COPY of it as a keepsake).

This scares the bejebbies out of me. At the last minute (if I can not get the check in hand at *fix* time I might just go etf

I am in the process of doing the buyback. I tried to send everything online and failed. Now I am in the process of sending it all through the mail.
I believe I saw specific instructions for sending via mail or fax that stated to write your Name and reference number on all pages, but don't want to do that unless I verify that is the correct way.
I have tried to look it up through the Portal, but can''t seem to find anything, and You can't just scroll back through the agreement.
Thanks for any info from anyone that has already sent their paperwork through the mail.

I scheduled my backpack appointment via the claims portal just now.

I may have misread the current mileage instructions.........in that I went into my garage and entered todays odometer reading.

Did I screw-up? Should I have entered my ESTIMATED odometer reading at the time of my 29 August buyback appointment.

Thanks to all who participate in this highly useful site!

I believe they do the estimates. I know they have to reevaluate once you are in there for actual mileage. I wasn't too concerned with my mileage number. More concerned that I am about to make a second car payment since starting on all this.
