    Good Lord, it’s a Buyer’s Market on Low Miles Golfs

    I decided to look for low miles Golf TDI S for my son’s daily driver. I set a search for under 30K miles, within 200 miles of my zip code, under $17K. There must be 75 cars in the list. Several are under $14. Dieselgate is a gift that keeps on giving!

    DPF replaced under warranty?

    I have a question for the 2.0 owners. I can’t seem to find it answered anywhere. In another forum for 3.0 owners a disagreement has emerged over the dieselgate extended warranty coverage for the DPF. Some insist that the coverage only extends to the DPF “breaking.” I insist that it extends to...

    Is anyone with a gen 2 3.0 still waiting for half the Bosch money?

    I just called their info line and the representative, reading off a sheet, seemed to be telling me that because I purchased after September, 2015, the other half of my payment would not be payable until April, 2020. Which seems like BS. I have a Q5 purchased in January. The former owner did not...

    Hyundai of Cookeville: Worst Persons of the Week

    Amount of offer in envelope: $17,225 Amount of my buyback: $43,300 Now, please don't misunderstand, I am aware there is nothing illegal about this scheme. But it is wrong, in my opinion. If they sent a generic letter offering an incentive to VW diesel owners to buy a Hyundai there would be no...

    Chipwerke Piggyback Tuner: 3.0 Dieselgate Solution?

    After much deliberation, I have decided to install a $300 Chipwerke Pro piggyback tuner in my 2015 Q5 TDI. As one who has never done any modifications to a car, even this little step was big for me. Here's why. My 2011 Touareg is/was the best car I've owned. (It's parked awaiting the buyback.)...

    Efficient Use of the 3.0 TDI in a Q5 -- Thoughts?

    I posted this in the AudiWorld Q5 forum and got basically no response. There are a few diesel owners over there but most are gasser owners and not TDI enthusiasts who want to know all about the engine or care that much about fuel efficiency. I come over from a 2011 Touareg TDI with vastly...

    TDI veteran, now in Q5

    Hi! Thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a 2011 Touareg TDI owner awaiting buyback. I couldn't face a future without diesel torque so I just purchased a 2015 Q5 TDI. I am confident that the 3.0l gen 2 fix will leave us in good shape. Also I am betting that good service on the TDI engine will be...
