    What happened to our car?

    We turned in our 27k miles, '11 Jetta TDI MT. Great car for 5 years but we couldn't resist the buy out. Seems like a waste for a fine,efficient vehicle. What are they doing with these?

    Where are manual transmissions?

    where are they going? We turned in our '11 Jetta TDI MT w 28K miles, ( 15 minute process, very friendly and professional). Great car but we couldn't pass up getting 95% of our money back after 5 years and moved up to a premium gasser. Just curious as to what happened to the vehicle? Seems...

    Audi deals?

    Going to turn in our low mile '11 Jetta MT TDI in May, basically with the payout we've had a free ride for 5 yrs and are looking to upgrade our mule. Audi A4 looks like a good fit with us and we may take our check to the Audi dealer. Anybody heard of any special deals for TDI owners to...

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    When we were shopping for our '11 Jetta tdi we tested a Mazda 3. Nice little car with a lot of content ( this is when Mazda was overselling some new engine gimmick "zoom-zoom" Drove OK but didn't have that German feel, especially at highway speeds

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    Good points all but consider this - VW offers you purchase price less x cents per mile. There is a reasonable calculable number that would make you fell " whole" or a little better. No windfall or "pain and suffering", but you know that cars cost money to use and if your TDI turned out to...

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    I have trouble believing that anybody is going to be able to turn in their TDI and walk away with a chunk of cash. VW desperately needs to recapture that money and have us leave with another VW no matter what the cost in incentives/deals etc. One scenario is offering purchase price less...

    My guess is that if the cheat didn't impact mileage or performance they wouldn't have done it

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    This may have already been said, but in todays' WSJ opinion section our whole situation is laid out pretty well. ( sorry I can't post as link, my sub expired I think). We are not polluting the atmosphere by driving the TDI. In fact displacing gasser miles is a net benefit. NOx standards were...

    Not a good comparison - C for C was a Democratic sounds good/makes little sense program that had a bone for the UAW. It didn't need to work it just needed to sound like it worked. VW must get this right for its financial health and long term survival. With stakes this high, every aspect of...

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    Wouldn't start spending the $5k yet, until we get more real info. Not to say $5k is impossible, but 'one size fits all' could alienate some owners further which is not what VW needs. And what are the conditions? Can you still register your car if you don't get the fix. Lots of...

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    Question is if VW will have the wherewithal to make 600,000 owners feel they've been treated fairly when all the NOX clears. Tough to define what "fairly" is at this point but we'll know it when we see it. If I feel that the total costs of my TDI ( or replacement) wind up where expected...
