The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency authorized the fix to VW's 2-liter engine diesel cars from 2009 through 2014, including the Jetta, Jetta SportWagen, Golf, Beetle, Beetle Convertible and Audi A3.
After the fix, average fuel economy per vehicle will fall by up to 2 miles per gallon, VW spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan said in an email.
I'll stick my neck out. The reason I thought there would never be a fix for Gen 1 is because VW's final submittal deadline for a fix was Jan 27, 2017.Cant wait to read their future posts. Should be fun.
Still not really a proper fix, more like a bandaid to a problem, or duct tape for a leaking pipe. The NOx output will still be around 3-4 times higher than the standard for Tier 2 Bin 5.Sweet. That should shut up all the "experts" who insisted that there would be no fix for the gen 1 cars.
Your vehicle was originally certified to EPA and CARB emission standards. After the modification, your vehicle’s emissions will be reduced but will still be higher than the emission standard to which it was originally certified.

Up to 2mpg reduction? And this is not a certified emission repair.
they are not even planing on sumbitting a fix for Generation 1 3.0L TDI's until later this summer, they did submit a fix for the Gen2 3.0L's in April-June depending on subtype.Probably depends on what generation of 3.0 you're talking about. I bet it's six months more for the Generation 1.
On a 2009 sure, since it gets one anyway. On an '11, will they make you pay for a new dpf and egr (if defective/broken currently) in order to get their fix or would they to have eat that in order to make the car compliant?DPF is one of the replacement items. I bet it won't be an issue.
