    I'm down in Mississippi, the VW is in Alexandria, Va. It's due for turn in Dec 17th in Alexandria, all paperwork done. My MIL just took a fall, HOPEFULLY not too bad. Both my wife and I are on the title. Do we both HAVE to be there for turn in?

    If you are considering buyback which cars are you looking at as replacements?

    Just in time, another diesel Well I've been thoroughly disgusted facing the future loss of my TDI. So much that I've mostly stayed away from here and general car news since the first of the year. My wife had mandated we get a Ford for the replacement (only car dealer in town we are retiring...

    Just post it! Like lightflyer wrote, Meg8 you have no knowledge of how many of us are lurking here trying to decide to turn it in, go for the fix or just ignore it all.

    Got the "fix" friday, got P0401 code today :)

    Now it's getting closer to a potential $1/mile for a DPF if I pay a dealer for repairs. As I wrote I have not searched on here much for the average life of a DPF and I think my 70K is a bit low, but between the timing belt, dpf, and the hpfp I'm beginning to think turn in :( The timing belt...

    post fix DSG update failure - bricked cars with no solution from VW

    Very glad I read this thread. Left my lovely red '09 JSW in Virginia in late July and received the message about "the fix" from VW. My hopes soared. Reading this thread mine (build date late '08?) is probably a candidate for the brickyard. :(

    Got the "fix" friday, got P0401 code today :)

    I've got a dirty tailpipe on my '09 at about 70K miles. Which brings up the questions - When will the DSG update be fixed? What is the likelihood a new DPF will crack before: that runs out?

    Getting ready to say good-bye

    My feelings exactly. We had a LOVELY 5 year old Corgi that came down with meningitis that could not be cured. We had to put her down in May. Took me 3 months to get over it. And VW has made us an offer to good for a vehicle (with a potentially failing DPF) for my wife to refuse.

    They are dealing with a monumental mess and the longer they can put it off the more people will die of natural causes and the more vehicles will be in accidents that render them inoperable. Time is on their side.
