    Restitution Payment on Totaled Car

    VW Chat again, this time more: So, what would VW use as the vehicle value? The buyback "return amount" or the insurance total loss settlement? Their buyback valuation was $14.2K (plus restitution, $20K total). The insurance total loss is $15.1K. Hopefully the higher because that's an actual...

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    I'm not defending VW, but these TDIs are still clean diesel, period. I'm a proud, informed owner and I will stick to my TDIs (and will avoid the recall as much as I can), BUT -- in this day and age where many come to a quick conclusion from just reading the headlines -- VW gave diesel a very...

    Intermittent outside lights issues ???
