    Has anyone returned a stripped TDI yet?

    I stripped mine down really far. Stole two of the black VW wheel inserts and the pulling tool because they work on my GTI.

    Buyback COMPLETED Car is now in Dealership Lot

    Was the third buyback in the state of Wisconsin. Turned car in at 5:25pm on 11/29/16 and walked out before 5:40. Buyback worker stated it was very helpful having all forms filled out properly and NOT putting the mileage on the odometer sheet until I was at the dealership. Received the EFT...

    Anyone planning on "ridin dirty" ?

    I cancelled my insurance last week. Put the 11/29/16 date in though so I'm not sure if I'm covered or not. Just going to drive very cautious for the 29 mile trip to the dealer.

    Runs rough Jerks for 2 minutes, then?

    Mine seems to be getting worse with the colder temps. I think it's time to park it and wait for the buyback. Not willing to gamble and keep driving it.

    Being Smart with your Buyback money and purchase of next vehicle

    Also look at putting the $20k buyback money towards your mortgage as a lump payment to save a ton of money. Use some total loan calculators to see what works best for you. I could have paid my new GTI off without a loan with my buyback money, but it's about $7,000 cheaper in the long run...

    Anybody consider the VW GTI to replace you TDI hatch??

    Went with a 16 GTI myself to replace my TDI Passat. Love the car so far, you just have to be realistic about the fuel economy. I drive about 24 miles each way and am averaging about 34-35 miles per gallon so far. I would have gotten a WRX but with a $4,500 discount on the GTI it would cost me...

    Runs rough Jerks for 2 minutes, then?

    Mine is the same as yours, but 4th gear instead of third. I typically keep my 3rd gear under 2k rpm's before shifting. This might be why mine is different.

    What if the "FIX" results in poor milage/performance?

    Range is the only think I'd be worried about besides overall cost. I'd rather have a vehicle that gets 15mpg for $5,000 than get a vehicle that costs $85,000 and gets 120mpg. To make up the cost difference alone would take almost 500,000 miles at 2.50 per gallon. Obviously some repair dollars...

    EZ $$$ for buybackers

    Most people have house loans around 3.5-4% and car loans are 2% or less in general. Even after deducting tax deductions you'd still be saving money. In my case I'll be saving $5,000+ and years off my mortgage by paying off the house faster vs paying off the car. I'll also have my...

    EZ $$$ for buybackers

    Easier way to save more money is to finance the replacement car and put a big lump sum payment on your house.
