Do us all a favor and ignore the letter, they knowingly caused this issue to begin with, still are not doing all to complete turn ins, and now are incompetent that they lost the title and want your help, not your problem any longer.

Folks should lighten up a bit. VW bought back nearly 300,000 TDIs. Misplacing a title or two isn't the least bit surprising. The other day we were talking about how (or if) they've been keeping track of keys. Even with the best systems at dealers they get lost.

I'd resend the buyback letter offer to them and ask if they'd still like to buyback your car.

people have been doing that with buyback '15 in hopes of getting that remainder 1/3 payment. VW still hasn't sifted through the paper work to deny the calim.

I just received a similar letter from VW, however my letter states that they did not receive the odometer and title records from our closing appointment on 12/20/2016. No check box question was present in my package on if I did in fact turn these records over (which I did). What I find irritating is VW's presumption that the lost records are my responsibility and that I am obligated to provide them powers of attorney, sign off on a odometer figure and confess to a lost title.

I plan on responding to VW that such records were provided to their agent and replacement of those records are their responsibility. In addition I will be sending a copy of the VW correspondence to my Motor Vehicle Department and VW can take it up with them.

^if they can't find the title, then they don't own the car!

Report it stolen - that would be funny to some of us (with a sense of humor)

It would be interesting to see how far someone's sense of humor would go when charged with filing a false police report.
Then there's the more general question of who's in more of a position to cause trouble for who. I can see some schmo about halfway up the VW admin ladder in all this taking exception to all of it, and making the whole thing their hobby for a month or two.
Personally, after reviewing this thread, I don't see any problem with just letting it drop. There is no need to do anything, therefore do nothing.

Why make it difficult on them? It doesn't matter how the title was lost, they need documents from you to prove they are the legal owners of the vehicle in their possession.

Power of attorney grants them the legal authority over the vehicle you sold to them

signing off on the odometer is simply a statement of fact

"confessing" to a lost title doesn't mean anything since this isn't a criminal proceeding and there isn't any harm to your written acknowledgement that the title is now lost so the current owner can obtain a re-issued title

In California, the request form simply states: "lost" (among other reasons) and doesn't assign "blame" to one party or the other. It could be lost by the previous owner or it could blow out the window while the buyer is driving home. The state doesn't care as it's all the same thing--a lost title. Seems to be roughly the same paperwork in MO.

If the previous owner refuses to declare to the DMV that they are/were the previous owner and relinquish ownership claim to the current owner, then the current owner has to go through a relatively stringent process in order to obtain title (court order or surety bond, for examples). You have nothing to lose by helping them demonstrate to the DMV that they own the vehicle and nothing to gain by refusing to help--other than some sense of victory derived from making their process more difficult than necessary. I understand there's value in that for some people, but come on if that's really your position both parties just want to move on so why drag it out?

Got the same thing this week. They don’t have my title, POA or ODO. However, they did not include the Title form so I just wrote on their letter that I gave it during appointment. They also included 2 envelopes, one regular and one FedEx.

What’s the big deal guys? Sign it and send it back. You already got paid, why be ******* about it?

Default 1 Year after buyback VWoA claims they didn't get my title

It's not a big deal, I just thought it was odd I received that notice in first place. Just wanted to see what others opinions were since this is a discussion forum for diesel buybacks
