Do you think so? I would say people would avoid them at this point. I know I would not buy another one from VW.about 67,000 diesels from the 2015 model, about 12,000 of which are currently in new car dealer inventory
~12,000 new TDIs about to go on sale in the US! !!hurrah!! with two years of pent up demand for new VW diesels these things will be picked up pretty fast...
VW diesel owners that are the buyers like me who think this entire mess is nothing more than a political ploy to try to remove the auto class diesel option leave the US & Canada have been waiting for this moment!. ~12,000 units of all makes of 2015 TDIs of new cars, there is real pent up demand for these cars!Do you think so?

That's me.....just inquired about a 2015 Passat TDI/auto w/24k. Dealer was asking 30k, I was like that car didn't even sell for 30k when NEW in 2015!! He said it was VW BB plus grievance.......I was like "keep it".....Certainly, most are not willing to pay full list price for a 3 year old car.....
A couple of things since you're doing some research... solar payback should be a lot quicker now that your electricity rate is almost doubling. Even at 12 cents per kWh, cost to drive is about half the cost of diesel (raw energy cost in cents per mile).I'm right there with you, keeping diesel power as I looked into solar + EV or Plug in hybrid and its still not worth it- solar panels would pay for themselves just about when they are at the end of there life, the state tax's ev's on the miles you drive (very bad when you live a hour outside of town) and the power company just notified us that rates are jumping from 7 cents a kwh to 12 cents, all very bad for ev's
I will keep my NMS
Good points. I have to wonder if he did the r.o.i. calc based on that 7 cent kw/hr power. An owner installed array will also cut the r.o.i. period significantly.A couple of things since you're doing some research... solar payback should be a lot quicker now that your electricity rate is almost doubling.

Fortunately solar costs continue to go down, so holding off for a year or two should make installing a system even cheaper than it is today. Solar life, while typically quoted at 20 years, is generally much longer than that. Payback depends on how much solar insolation your site actually has, how your system is set up and how much of that power you can utilize or sell back with a grid-tie system (and how much the power company pays you on a grid-tie system).
Funny you think like that.Do you think so? I would say people would avoid them at this point. I know I would not buy another one from VW.
https://www.iaai.com/Vehicle?itemID=24102777&RowNumber=24 soldI turned my 15 Passat SE, 24500 miles back in on the 29th
They said it would be repaired and resold.
I feel like one of my legs have been amputated so I checked out an insurance auction I frequent to see what I could find.
Lots of Jetta's, some Gulf's and Passats, but the auction prices are crazy high, for instance...2013 Golf, low mileage, manual, flood car. sal title but run and drive, goes off Wednesday bid is at $12000.
The MB's are selling cheaper?
My 05 is looking better and better. Believe I'll take better care of it.
I'm at a lost as to what's going on, I figured for sure they would sell cheap at auction? and I would be able to snag another Passat
