No one can give you a definitive answer except VW.

Default 2015 Golf TDI - leased

Curious if anyone else is waiting for the 2nd gen mod and has any info re when it will be offered? I - in good faith - chose to keep my lease and get the mods. I had no idea that the 2nd mod hadn't even been approved by the EPA when I chose this option. And of course VW didn't tell me. I have already had the first mod done and wondered why they hadn't notified me about the 2nd yet...nor sent me the first portion of my "restitution" payment. Many calls to the claims line later and two different answers and now a call to the attorneys that VW offers for appeals and problems with the claim process. I want to turn in my lease (when it is due in mid-April) and get another VW. But I will not receive the last 1/3 of my claim amount unless the mod is complete. Obviously I never would have chosen that option if they had really spelled it out to me AND I could have done what others are doing re buying the lease and then starting claims process under someone else's name. This has all been so frustrating.

In April/May of 2017, yes. VW even paid me the former lessee payment and I got checks for both from Bosch.

In January of 2018? I cannot say as I have no firsthand experience. They may be wise to this loophole now - it was specifically closed in the 3.0L settlement.

I’ve been told I need to file an appeal with the Claims Review Committee (CRC). This is a trio of folks; one appointed from counsel’s side, one from VWs and one form the judge.

I apparently purchased a vehicle that was bought out of a lease and this is where I have landed.

“To submit an appeal to the Claims Review Committee, you must send a written request to appeal to the Claims Review Committee, P.O. Box 214500, Auburn Hills, MI 48321 or crc@vwcourtsettlement.com.

Your request must include the following information:

Claimant’s name, address, telephone number, VIN of the affected vehicle and Claim Reference Number.
A brief statement and documentation on why you should receive Owner Restitution.”

Default VW is going to leave me hanging.

I chatted with the online help today. Here is my situation:

Bought my own car out of lease during the scandal. It's a six speed manual with no fix available. They told me today the Willie Wonka: I get nothing, when I mentioned the upgraded claim letter for no fix manuals:

"There might've been a confusion, the letter that you are referring to states that owner who choose AEM can now select Buyback due to the fix not being available. That wouldn't apply to you due to you first leasing your vehicle and not owning it. Even though you are now a owner the Buyback still wouldn't be an option for you. Once you purchased your vehicle the fix became your only option. Since the fix won't be available, there is no other option. The adjusted Buyback offers were for those who filed as an owner when they first created the claim."

Might be a long shot, but check if your situation falls under lemon law given that the dealership sold it to you in that "unfixed" (and unfixable) condition.

In order for the lease buyout to work, you had to cancel your original claim, sell the car to someone else, and have them make the claim. Because you've done it in some other way, it won't work.

Aren't there threads here detailing where people are being turned down for buyouts on originally leased cars?
