    Fix done. Money in the bank. Sell it?

    My 2015 fix is done. If I sell it, will the buyer be able to collect the money on the final fix? Or will I get it? Or no one? Thanks.

    No penalties for the big guys!!

    Just thinking. I haven't read anything about the penalties for the execs that masterminded and implemented the cheating scandal. I guess paying off people gets them off the hook. Nice golden parachutes when they leave VW. Crime pays.

    Still angry with VW after buyback?

    I was angry with VW for lying to me about their vehicles, but the buyback has eased it a lot. Of course I will never buy any VW product again.

    Delayed compensation for emission fix option

    Got my offer for the emission fix yesterday. But it looks like I have to wait until they get an approved fix, then you get 2/3, then later the other 1/3. If no fix is available until May 2018, you can still opt for buyback. Kind of sucks that you have to wait all this time, risk damage to your...

    Coolant flush for 2015 TDI's ??

    I believe the heater core was re-designed for the 2015's, but I wonder about the theory that the regen's are causing the coolant to break down. Yes, the 2015's use G13 but I am thinking that coolant flushes might be good pro-active maintenance to prevent future heater core problems. Thoughts?

    2015 TDI Improvements?

    2015, 2016 TDI's- Great or Sub-par?

    Trying to figure out if my 2 2015's are going to end up being great cars or headaches. On recent TDI's we have had blown turbo's, bad sensors, HPPF failures, premature water pump failures, clogged heater cores,etc. Yeah, I have the EA288 engine but I wonder how that is going to hold up. I do...

    2015 TDI Turbo Design?

    Finished reading the Sticky on all the turbo failures, but couldn't find any from the 2015 TDI. Has VW changed the design of the turbo system? Sure looks like previous years have a turbo design problem.

    Keeping a TDI after warranty runs out?

    From past experience with Benz's, it just got too expensive to replace failed components after my warranty expired. I did all the routine maintenance and reliability was okay up to around 100,000 miles. I had 2 E320 CDI's. As the front end components were being replaced I started worrying about...
