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

    I don't know if I want to pass on a $12 check from a law firm five years from now.

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

    The reason I had to sell my old Jetta was due to their "service" department's work after my water pump failed (just inside the final thousand miles of warranty at least). The car basically fell apart piece by piece after that.

    And they are getting around that by removing the "CPO" stickers and re-listing them as used.

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

    I wonder if someone sold it in a panic at an extremely low price. My local dealership isn't selling/purchasing them at all.

    Tell me about it! They treat me like a leper when I drive onto the lot now.

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

    I could see them selling off some of the luxury brands but really hoping they don't sell Audi - all of the other luxury cars look and drive like carbon copies (to me).

    VW.com is now showing "502 Bad Gateway" and not loading. Seems like the new allegations are delaying their sign-then-drive event...

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

    They must be updating the site this morning then. When I visited earlier this morning the home page still showed the "App Connect" ad that had been there for a while. Hopefully it'll update throughout the day. EDIT: Also, this was foretold by a member on this forum a few days ago (can't...

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

    Oh, man... That doesn't sound good. Sort of explains why ALL offers/incentives disappeared from the VW website/local dealer websites.

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

    I live in the Piedmont. We've got charging stations at the dealerships (Winston, Greensboro, Burlington), but that's it. No public charging like Charlotte and the RDU area. This, of course, clarifies the decision for the e-Golf not being offered, haha. Thanks for the clarification!

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

    I absolutely agree but I'll just continue to wait as patiently as possible. Thought this story was a glimmer of hope for those wanting to trade their affected vehicle in.

    I'm hoping this will incentivize dealers to buy back TDIs knowing they are guaranteed a sale - either by private party or to VW itself.

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

    I was kinda wondering that. I know in San Diego and a few other parts of California at least (according to a few news articles I've read), there is a push to get EV charging stations installed into multi-family homes - apartments - and they have quite a few stations around the larger cities in...

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

    Oh, absolutely. I was just saying the reason I like the TDI over the electric is that you get great mileage AND can reliably take long road trips in it. I wish I could afford to have an around town vehicle and a distance one, but just one at a time for me.

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

    We don't have ANY in my town. The closest city that has them is about an hour and a half away in a parking garage. EDIT: I'm referring to public stations, as the dealerships that sell EV's have them.

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

    My aversion to the eGolf versus the TDI is long road trips and the potential of not finding a charging station. Unless I'm driving through California, I'd imagine it would require at least a few trips out of the way to ensure I made it (I'm on the east coast - Carolinas). That and living in an...

    Sounds about like my situation. Mine was sitting around that mid-August but put off trading it in to buy an engagement ring. I'm just waiting as patiently as possible right now to see what comes of everything.
