    Anybody get the error code P1065?

    Clear the code and drive. If it comes back, then investigate further.

    Bosch Settlement email

    I see your point Dan - and thanks for seeing mine. But when it comes to money, I don't live by generalities and assumptions. Anyway, I didn't see any harm in asking a specific question that wasn't specifically covered by the language in the email. I'm sorry you didn't see it that way. Best...

    Bosch Settlement email

    If it was, I wouldn't have asked. :rolleyes: The information posted before my question just states the obvious if one has already filed; it does not mention nor differentiate specifically between active/pending cases and those that have already been closed by VW and marked completed. If I'm...

    Bosch Settlement email

    What about for those of us that have already had their claims completed and closed? I ask because I did not receive this email. I turned my car in on January 14th and my claim record shows as closed.

    Turning in with either an ECU or DSG tune

    I had a Malone stage II tune on my Golf. Turned it in as-is with the tune installed along with all the other mods left on the car. Wasn't worth the time, money, or effort trying to revert everything back to stock.

    For all you 2.0 TDI lovers that are struggling whether to keep or sell back, ...

    I'll consider another diesel if Mercedes ever brings back their straight six oil burner. I know they're reintroducing the straight six gasoline engine sometime next year... not sure about diesel. I've had my share of BMWs, and I don't think I'll go back.

    How long after buyback closing is a bank loan paid off?

    The claims people will tell you that they don't have a timeline on when checks get mailed out. They too cut my check on the 21st of January but it's still sitting there along with yours and Chad's. What I did hear from VW Credit is that VWoA is batch mailing these checks in 1 month intervals...

    German Court Hildesheim: VW cheat = horse-meat lasagna

    Anyone know where one can get horsemeat lasagna in Manhattan? This thread has gotten my culinary interests piqued. Sent from my LG-H918 using Tapatalk

    How long after buyback closing is a bank loan paid off?

    Hey Chad, called the claims hotline today. Still no tracking number. I'm gonna wait another 10 business days and if no payoff by then, I'm sending in a payment and will wait for the overage check. But yes, this is really stupid of them sending out checks in 1 month intervals, especially since...

    I am Fu** , HPFP dead

    Which is why I parked my Golf at 135k miles and only drove it to the dealer at turn in. Sucks to be you bro. My only suggestion at this point is to replace the pump with a used one, clean the injectors, and hope it runs enough to limp it into the dealership. Sent from my LG-H918 using Tapatalk

    I thought I was done, now what of this Bosch stuff?

    Very nice. Need to buy some stuff for my S65. An extra 350 bucks is very welcome. Any word on when checks will get disbursed? Sent from my LG-H918 using Tapatalk

    How long after buyback closing is a bank loan paid off?

    Have you called Claims and gotten a tracking number yet? I called this morning and since the system said I had a wait of 30+ minutes, I decided to use the call back service. Well, I got a call back around 30 minutes later only to have the !@#$ing system tell me in a very nonchalant voice that...

    Bosch is also paying: WILL U.S. GOV'T APPROVE FIXES?

    An extra $350.00 would be nice. Anyone know how that'll work for those that have already turned in their vehicles?

    How long after buyback closing is a bank loan paid off?

    I called VW Credit this morning again. They again reiterated that customers need not pay for those who participated in the buyback and no longer have their vehicles. That said, she said the turnaround on checks getting received from VWoA has been averaging 10-15 working days so she advised to...

    How long after buyback closing is a bank loan paid off?

    Still waiting for payoff. Turned in on 14 January. Spoke to VW Claims - they said a check was generated on 21 January but no tracking number. They "promised to escalate." Next payment due 1 February.

    Dieselgate for tuned cars

    Yup. Why would I put back a broken DPF? I still have all the parts in my garage, but I wasn't going to spend the time and effort putting everything back the way it was.

    Do we have any info on individual lawsuits?

    Was it proven that Fiat/Chrysler had a similar emissions cheat device installed on their Ecodiesel powered vehicles? I thought that was just hearsay? Edit: never mind. Google is my friend...
