Just got my repair offer today dated January 19th 2018.

Just wondering once I bring my car in will I be receiving the amount stated in the letter "ESTIMATED Amount VW Will Pay You" or is it broken into TWO payments, partial payment now and the remainder at some point in the future?

Received mine today dated January 19th as well. If your car has a previous owner as mine did, it should state below the estimated amount that the payment is based upon a valid claim by the vehicle's previous owner etc. Once the fix was approved, participation payments ended. Payments are now only made after the vehicle is fixed.

That is exactly what my offer is.

However I thought originally the vehicle would be brought in for a stage 1 or step 1 inspection and then repaired some months later. I suppose this was the scenario before there was a repair.

Got 4 of my 9 outstanding previous claim letters via UPS 2nd Day Air on Friday, 2 more scheduled to arrive today (can see it through UPS myChoice).

Seems dumb to have a digital portal and then manually send offer letters, but whatever.

How are you doing on them? Previous claims turn out to be legit or you get surprised and get full amount back on some or what?

So far all were legit previous claims. Bit of a bummer.

An additional data point: all letters have been dated around Jan 24-26. So 3+ week lag time.

So I finally got my offer in the mail. I am getting half of he restitution, when I called them to tell them that there was no previous claim, they are telling me that because I bought in July of 2017 I am only eligible to half of the restitution, even if there was no previous claim. Does anybody know if this is accurate???

That's not correct. If you are getting a half offer letter, there was a previous claim. I'd escalate to PSC attorneys, but likely not much they can do.

Every single vehicle had that request. They wouldn't accepted assigned titles (since I'm a dealership, I don't have an actual title, just the re-assigned title from the previous owner) so I had to get bills of sale for 20+ cars. Most of which were bought at auction, which give you a digital bill of sale (says "e-signature on file"). This wasn't enough for VW, so had to get signatures on all bills of sale.

This process was a big PITA and poorly thought through, but oh well.

I just got off the phone w class counsel and they are saying they are in negotiation w VW about the spirit of the settlement and not paying people at all that they deem just trying to profit off of settlement. They told me people may not even be able to get the fix done and get the money from that. they are currently in negotiation and there is no set date to continue negoatiation. It could go until the end of the settlement.

News to me. I've turned in 20+ 2.0L and Gen I 3.0L cars and had the fix performed on all but 6 of my 20+ Gen II 3.0Ls.

Have gotten paid on basically every one (waiting on some fix money for a handful fixes performed in past 10 days, but that is typical). If I wasn't deemed as "profiting", I don't see how anyone could be.
