Looks like a 2 week lead time, I uploaded my docs on Nov 28th so I would imagine the week of Dec. 12th I will hear further.

None too soon since I picked up a Golf R this week! It's amazing... I can actually pass people on a two lane road :)

Same here. Going to schedule tonight since I don't know my exact current mileage

So far I can't complain. The process has worked very smoothly with each step progressing to the next about one week after uploading or faxing documents back to the settlement site. I just got the e-mail this morning to set the appointment date. There were lots of dates available in December, but I chose January so as to drop down into the next lower mileage bracket and get $210 more.

Letter requesting Doc's dated Nov 24th. Received E-Mail on Nov. 25th. Returned completed Doc's on Nov 27th. Just scheduled return this morning December 5th, so it looks like a little sooner than the 10 day turn around. The only date that worked for me was Dec 27th; however, there were dates as soon as the 22nd. It's funny another Texan just a couple of post above this one was just able to schedule his return date? Makes me wonder if they are looking at different regions that have the earliest slots now versus paperwork dates? I'm not sure anyone will crack that code!

Yeah I wondered about this too. I spoke to another from San Antonio and said one of the dealers in town has yet to get anything scheduled. I am wondering if I will be the first at the dealer I chose. I've also speculated that if VW wasn't prepared with enough claims reviewers and auditors on the back end due to this onslaught, what makes anyone think they were prepared at the dealer end of this process? They probably had to accelerate the hiring of ambassadors and the "transportation logistics" of ingesting this massive amount of buybacks in such a short period.

Submitted mine on 11/26 and received my notice to schedule my appointment today. Most dealers in my area have appointments available the week after Christmas.

I faxed my notarized documents in on Nov. 13th - a Sunday - got the notice to sign in to schedule a buyback date last night - Dec 4th. I took the first available date - Dec 22nd.

We uploaded our documents on 11/28 and received email to setup appointment 12/5 and we will be turning both cars on 12/21. Good luck to anyone still waiting for this process to end.

Uploaded notarized documents 11/28,
Approval appeared on the claims site 12/5,
Earliest appointment at my preferred dealer was 12/22 with all time slots open.

FWIW -- the approval on the claims site mentions I will also be receiving an approval e-mail.
For those still waiting for the e-mail, I'd also check the vw claim site meanwhile.

I sent in the last documents right after Thanksgiving, and yesterday was able to choose and appt 2 weeks from now. So, pretty much in line with other people.

I imagine that after this initial rush, it will go faster, but at least there is steady movement, so I'm OK with the timing. I haven't been in a mad rush to get it over with, just want to move on already.
