I’m in the same situation. Sold my 2010 back to VW, bought a fixed CPO 2015, waited for the title, uploaded all the documents, waited some more, they wanted the bill of sale so I uploaded that, waited some more and then got denied today.
Maybe because it was a buyback as well? I’ll be calling today to find out more and will reply back here.
please let us know.
I can't see us getting any money, but I dont see any incentive for getting pahse 2 without it, unless it is needed for the 162K warranty
The other incentive for getting the Phase II fix is that the emissions extended warranty is reset for 5 years/60,000 miles from when Phase II is completed. So if one waits until the very end to get Phase II, one would potentially maximize the extended warranty coverage (but would wait on getting what might be the final 1/3rd restitution payment).I called the claims support line and they were not able to tell me why I was denied, but the lady I spoke with said she was pretty sure I would be able to get 1/3 the restitution after Phase 2 is done. She suggested I reach out to the class counsel for a definitive answer, and said the process may just not be established since phase 2 isn’t available yet. I’ve sent them an email and will keep you all updated.
And I agree on the incentive, where I live we don’t do diesel emissions testing so it would only be needed for warranty I assume. I’ll get it done either way, but some cash would help!

What is throwing me off on the 1/3rd Phase II restitution payment on previously owned 2015's is that, in most cases, the prior owner had VW buyback the vehicle, which included the market value plus restitution payment. So if VW paid the new owner the 1/3rd Phase II emission fix restitution, I would perceive that payment to be made twice. Hopefully, it will!
Just responding to how others with purchased 2015 models stated in this thread.Well I don't know where this 1/3 and 2/3 comes from.
I bought my Passat on May 31st 2016. This year in June I had the Phase 1 done and shortly after received 50% of a settlement amount. In 2018 when they'll do the Phase 2 then shortly after I will receive the second 50% of the settlement amount.
From the settlement agreements--that's how the restitution for the fixed MY2015 cars is paid. You didn't get half of the restitution in June, you got 2/3. When you have them do Phase 2, you'll get 1/3. Your offer letter explains this in some detail.Well I don't know where this 1/3 and 2/3 comes from.
Ah, good point--I hadn't noticed that @Jetta_Pilot was in Canada. So to answer your question, @Jetta_Pilot, the 2/3-1/3 break is in the US settlement agreements. Very little of what's being discussed in this forum deals with the Canadian settlements.Is the Canadian settlement different from the US settlement in this regard?
Now I know us up in Canuckistan are somewhat ignoredAh, good point--I hadn't noticed that @Jetta_Pilot was in Canada.

UPDATE: VWGOA Email ResponseConverted from fix to buyback on my 2013 Passat and bought a 2015 Passat. It's used with 29,000 miles on it. Dealer did Phase 1 fix. I've applied for the Phase 2 fix restitution. Currently being evaluated at step 15 which says:
"We have reviewed all of your documents. Currently, your application contains all the necessary documentation to determine your eligibility. We are now determining your eligibility and will inform you whether you are eligible to participate in the Settlement Claims Program and, if applicable, will provide you with a final offer."
Estimated payment is $2,734. Fingers crossed.
Please do a little research before posting ignorant comments.Vw would be paying more. They already paid the original owner of the car the full amount.........
Ignorant comments, wow, pot calling the kettle black much.Please do a little research before posting ignorant comments.
The original owner could not have possibly received the full amount because VW does not have the second stage of the fix available yet.
2015 models require a 2 step process to be brought into compliance, and the owners are only entitled to 2/3 of the restitution amount upon completing the first stage, and the last 1/3 upon completion of the final stage (which is not available at this time).
This makes sense. Thanks, 740GLE.A: 2015 that were bought back by VWoA, VWoA performed phase 1 of the fix in order to resell, car is currently being resold by a dealer or independent shop. No addtional money is on the table. The title will show transfer to Madison WI in this case
B: 2015 that was straight out traded/sold to any dealer, independent of any VWoA transaction, where as the owner had phase 1 fixed and were paid for said fix. There is still money on the table for phase 2 fix that either the dealer or next owner can capture once phase 2 is available. No title transfer to Madison WI in this case.
The spit payments are only available to cars that were titled before Sept 2015, the NOS that went on sale last April get zero additional compensation.
