    Buyback TDI replacing with which car/suv?

    We got the 2.5 Premium 6sp manual which has the winter package. (Heated Windshield, Mirrors etc etc. + sunroof which I can take or leave) CPO paid off for us. The tranny went out after a month. Subaru replaced it under warranty and we threw a clutch in the mix since the labor was covered. So...

    VW Buyback program is a nightmare

    Strange. We did ours today. Went as smooth as butter. I don't blame VW. If the EPA hadn't had there greedy hands all over this we wouldn't be here. Big business is spewing more greenhouses gasses into the atmosphere in an hour than our little TDIs do in a year. Just follow the money. They might...

    No more Diesel for US from VW

    My prediction is that diesel fuel prices will rise so exponentially that returns on fuel cost will outweigh MPG returns. This is what happened in my country of origin. Making diesel ownership only a marginal advantage. Before manufacturers started making small diesel engines, diesel fuel was...

    Claims portal error at step 18 "Scheduling"

    Just got my buyback scheduling email and tried logging in to the portal to update requested current mileage and schedule appointment. Web site is effectively down and calling the number sends your around in circles and eventually cuts me off. Chat window is also not working. Now I'm getting annoyed!

    Still angry with VW after buyback?

    I was never angry with them. I didn't buy the car because it was touted as a "Green Diesel" I bought it because I love Diesels and VW make decent vehicles and are leaders in Diesel technology. I will be sad to see the TDI go (We went for a AWD for the Michigan winter) Won't stop me from driving...

    High mileage Buyback

    It used to be the case that Diesel engines lasted longer than Gasoline but that gap has become almost closed in recent years with superior engineering and materials being used in engine construction. The only real world advantage to owning a diesel is, oranges for oranges, MPG returns; but even...
