    VW must contact you within 10 or earlier if claim is denied.

    Upcoming Release of 2015 TDI's from Stop Order

    I agree.....I suspect that a lot of buyers are going to go full retard because they fear this is the last of the TDI's forever Well....if its the last of the TDI's then parts are going to get scarce really fast...and I dont want to be left holding that bag.....its like owning a Saab right now

    Poll: Do You Wish You Had Bought a 2015?

    I bought a 2015 with 4k miles on it after dieselgate started. I'm eligable for the settlement but only get half of the fun money portion of the buyback/fix I've got a dealer I have confidence in so..... When you combine the simplicity of the fix with the extended warranty to 150k on emissions...

    Dieselgate: Volkswagen to Spend Up to $14.7 Billion to Settle ...

    I wouldnt bet on the diesel engine going anywhere for decades The primary reason for this is surprisingly emmissions imho Diesels are cleaner in every way except for NOX and NOX is fairly easily mitigated....lets not even get into the manipulation of standards by the epa and others over what...

    EA288 - A diesel way forward?

    IIRC it was pretty minor and it was predicated on feasibility/validation of durability of the fix.....if plan A works then G2G....if its proven not to be durable then they need to do more.......or something along those lines.....any way you slice it a 150k warranty sounds good to me My only...

    HPFP blew on 2014 Sportwagen TDI with 30k miles, VW won't help

    Yea, they cannot be exported as is....either they fix them or they drill holes in the block and cut the frame/body of the car to render it inoperable What a flipping waste

    Filtering out Dieselgate noise

    Mods, would it be possible to add an option to new posts function to allow folks to see new posts while filtering out the dieselgate noise? While there are a couple with real info the overwhelming majority are just noise and detract from the greatness of the site

    The settlement as proposed is complete BS

    There's no confusion The overwhelming majority of threads on this forum are now exclusively dedicated to people complaining about what VW is not doing to compensate them sufficiently for their hurt feelings on top of any issues with the car. Wish there were a good way to separate out the...

    The settlement as proposed is complete BS

    After periodically checking in on the dumpster fire thread that went on for months and the persistent whining of a large number of folks primarily new to VW and diesels in general.....Its become apparent that no matter what VW offerered for buyback/fix that the overwhelming majority of folks...

    The settlement as proposed is complete BS

    The butt hurt is strong in this crowd Does VW need to include a "Safe Space" or "Hurt Feelings" clause in the settlement? The settlement as outlined is pretty darn fair.....the expectations of some is not so realistic unfortunately

    EA288 - A diesel way forward?

    The sport wagons are one of the most popular/successful models that VW has come up with I wouldnt expect that to go away.....nor do I see diesel vw's going away either....VW diesels will simply return to the smaller niche that it was circa 2006 Still a profitable car for VW going...
