    Horrible Buy Back Experience .. The Worst.

    My "LIZ" handled my buy back much differently.... She showed me my check BEFORE we started the paperwork in her office. She had already taken her photos and had started the car prior to any time in her office. So, I was looking at the check at the same time I was signing the car over to VW...

    Overall since purchase last June, 37MPG over 11 fuel-ups and best of 46MPG while running mostly in urban speed limits last November. 40-50 MPH. This according to FUELLY. And the ride is SOOOO much better than the Passat!! Only thing I miss is the rain-sensing wipers.

    Need buyback advice

    I'd just drive it in...if it isn't TOO far - don't say anything. Prob going to the shredder anyway. Leave the spare on there. Just as to be driveable and have seats. Can you look under there and see what's causing the noise?

    I'd give that $ back if they'd give me back the sales (excise) tax.

    Marylanders With TDI Recalls
