The service group from VW took our title - signed Power of Attorney - removed and brought in our plates and took pictures of the VW. Then she entered into VW return web site. Web site went down before she could complete her entries. She called and was told server went down. After server came back up 90 minutes later, she could not access our file and could not complete the transaction. They got a ticket from their IT department that was to complete the transaction later last night. We would get confirmation via email that it was complete. No email yet. She was able to process other returns after ours. We are now in limbo. Does anyone know who runs the buy back program for VW. I'm looking for someone to call to fix this.
Yeah ~~ me too<snip>
But... What a shame. This was going to be the last car I was ever going to buy. At 67K miles the engine was just broken in. Averaged 46 MPG. Best tank went 927 miles @55.5mpg.
Not to be anal, but most bio-diesel is not made with corn. They use corn to make ethanol which goes into gasoline. Bio-diesel is usually made from rapeseed in the US, or other similar feed stocks. While I avoid ethanol in my gas cars (there are stations thats ell ethanol free gas including a new Maverik just a 2 miles from my house, if that), I like bio-diesel and for a while made sure I put a little in my JSWs. Higher lubricity amongst other things. Used to run up to 100% in my 2000 Dodge RAM 2500 with the Cummins, and 20% in my 2006 Dodge RAM 2500 with the Cummins, but in the JSW I would just put a gallon or 2 of B20 in with my normal D2.No more VW, no more diesel
Illlinois has no dino diesel, Gas stations are not really far between, but not every one has a bio diesel.. with 5 to 20% of corn content
One of the best looking VW Jettas ever conceived, just like my 2009 Jetta TDI, with 160K miles..Sad to know that its final destination is the crusher, but I guess all cars end up there at some point.
Glad for you ~~ it's overI came out here to write that I finally received my EFT today, and then I saw this post.
All I can say is hopefully my experience was an anomaly, and yours get solved quicker.
I turned my car in on 12/19 but they could not enter my mileage on the tablet. They told me I would have my receipt the next morning so I left my car there. I ended up finally getting my receipt late last week. My guess is holiday vacations were the biggest problem, as I don't think anyone was working on it.
Could not agree more Tex. I drove a MK VI as a rental and hated it. Lousy handling with that non-IRS (it is an option), and all the personality of a pop-up toaster. I drove a couple when I was looking for another vehicle and could not make myself like the damn thing. I told the sales guy that they lost my business when they abandoned the concept of a Golf-with-a-trunk. And, if I wanted a Honda Accord like transportation appliance, I'd buy a Honda Accord. Ironically, I ended up buying a Buick Regal with a 6-speed manual.I dunno what happened at VW after 2010, but they really jacked up the design of their cars.
It's the other way around. Diesel is a stable, non volatile product, not too far refined from crude.Gas vs Diesel i.e. ~~ regarding cars that are NOT being driven
Gas has got the upper hand ~~ IMO
With all these people trading in their low fuel consuming vehicles for high fuel consumption I wonder what it will do to the price of gasoline. Hopefully it goes up dramatically. Winter has been cooler as well so far which should raise Natural Gas prices.It's the other way around. Diesel is a stable, non volatile product, not too far refined from crude.
Gasoline, on the other hand, is highly refined. It evaporates readily, breaks down into lower refined states, and is far more volatile.
Well I own 100 shares of Chevron stock and some Staoil and Occidental Petroleum as well. So it would benefit me. As I only go into work 2 days a week and it is a short drive the price at the pump is not really too relevant to me.Hopefully it goes up?? Who does that benefit??

The number of low-consuming vehicles being taken off the road as a result of the buyback is minuscule in terms of the overall number of vehicles. This won't make a dent.With all these people trading in their low fuel consuming vehicles for high fuel consumption I wonder what it will do to the price of gasoline.

Chase email Tuesday (1/10/17) night at 20:42. Money in my credit union account Wednesday (1/11/17) morning. At least this part was fast!My turn in was on Friday, (1/6/2017). I got an email from VW before I left the dealership (15 minutes). Finally got the Chase email tonight (20:42).
Wow. I wish mine was that fast. Mine was over an hour. She had appointments every hour on the hour and I assume she was almost over or over on timing for them all.My turn-in was scheduled for 1730 today, 1/11.
I arrived at the dealer at 1645. My wife showed up at 1700.
We were in her Touareg and heading home by 1715.
Could not have been easier/quicker/smoother.
