We're pushing this thing as hard as possible! Membership has gone up by 246 since last night.I know many here don't know the Millennial lingo, but I wake up this morning and the Facebook group is lit! Great work getting those who don't come here to come out and share their circumstances everyone.
I'm not so sure we will follow US settlement here in Canada.Honestly, I'm 100% confident we'll be following the USA's way. We did it for the initial owner credit package, we'll do it again. I'm thinking their numbers are a bit high though, for buy back rates(which for us is good, I guess), because I bought my 2013 Jetta TDI at market value in September($22,500). And now, the USA is being quoted for my exact car, for $23,500, so with the CAD conversion, it'll be a bit higher for me. This doesn't make sense...Either way, I'm excited to see what happens, and a little impatient, since now I have to wait even longer to get that 2016 GTI I've been wanting for a year, now. Hurry up VW!
This+. when I called VW Can to see if they would help out, I was told that this isn't VW Canada's policy and the bill was all mine even though they confirmed they were aware of the VW US policy to cover the cost.
Its a public group, you should be able to see all the comments/posts. You just need to be a member to post.Some of us do not subscribe to FB.
Is there some way to open the Canadian group for us non-members to see the content?

Welcome to the island. I hear you about being held hostage. I've been wanting to sell my TDI so I can get a normal gas car since I don't drive long distances anymore. I only have 39,000 kms on my 2012 Golf....Reviewing the FB posts, I see some people suggesting we be patient and wait for the settlement.
The problem is I can't wait as I am moving next week and need a larger vehicle to haul the remainder of my stuff to Vancouver Island over the next few weeks.
VW is holding me hostage as I cannot sell my car until this is settled without a huge loss in value.
I own the car but cannot sell it without a huge loss, even though I paid a premium and it drives perfectly fine.
I REALLY HATE them for this.
This quote is funny now that we're up to almost 600 members!Article is up! And our Facebook group just passed 100 members!
This is exactly the problem: a lot of us bought these cars for commuting, aka large amounts of driving. The more days that pass, the more likelihood of vehicles being damaged/written off, higher mileage, etc.: basically everything contributes to a lower settlement cost......and the longer this plays out, the higher the mileage and the lower the buyback $$.
Definitely worth while. I'll put up a sticky post. I'm thinking we should have a timeline of what happened, a link to the US settlement info, and the online calculator that we've been using to figure out vehicle values.Do you think it's worth having a sticky post on the Facebook page with a summary of the past/future timelines with links to the US settlement info and calculator? It seems like a fair bit of people joining the facebook group have questions about that stuff. It's great that we are helping them out.

Done!Maybe just mention with the calculator that it only applies to the US settlement. People might confuse it for actually applying to Canadians. It is a good tool just to get an idea of what we could get if VW does apply the US settlement to Canadians. Other than that looks good!
