If you put the question on google, you will be directed to a number of websites that have the calculation tables. It depends on the vehicle year, model, and accessories. Minimum is $5100, can go up to about $7500.Does anyone know how to figure out the amount for "owner restitution"?
What's the time period these were bought?I have 13 salvage rebuilt cars, but I can't get them to accept my Proof of Acquisition (of course the VW customer service is useless).
I purchased them all rebuilt, they had a California Salvage certificate, I used a California Bill of Sale from a private party. I'm military, so although I'm stationed in California, I'm a resident of Oregon. Oregon allows the base police at your base to do the inspection. I had them inspected, and registered them in Oregon (Title says "Totaled Reconstructed").
For Proof of Acquisition, I've submitted my Bill of Sale and photo of the previous salvage certificate. It get's rejected as "Incorrect Document". I've explained there are no other sales documents, just the Bill of Sale and Previous Salvage certificate. Not sure what they want....The VW customer care asks if I have a "more official" bill of sale? (I guess like you'd get from a dealer...but I bought these from a private party, so I don't have anything like that)

I think it may make sense for those of us in this category to take this discussion offline. PM your email address and I’ll get it going.
I think if you claimed restitution you can't get it since it's been paid but you can get buyback minus restitution. Or a fix, I guess.Can some one clarify on my scenario (sorry I’m new to this forum).
So I currently have my daily driver 2014 Jetta TDI, it was leased by a previous owner, he wrecked it in late 2016. It ended up on IAAI in Fremont CA Auction. I purchased it, restored it and had it registered with a salvage title on February of 2017 (California only has clean or salvage title). Previous owner also filed for his restitution part. He recently just received his part (got a hold of previous owner), the next day I received an email and in my portal stating “Not member of class - You are not a member of the class.” Ineligible claim. I called the hotline and few of the lawyers representing the class and I received same answer, stating that the minimum requirement for this vehicle has been met. I’ll only qualify for a free fix some time in 2019 once the settlement deadline closes. Am I getting the correct info?
From what VW is saying they met their minimum requirement on my vehicle set by the judge. Just previous owners restitution is good enough, and they will not pay anyone else anything nor buy it back.I think if you claimed restitution you can't get it since it's been paid but you can get buyback minus restitution. Or a fix, I guess.
That doesn't sound right. What it is is:From what VW is saying they met their minimum requirement on my vehicle set by the judge. Just previous owners restitution is good enough, and they will not pay anyone else anything nor buy it back.
"Vehicle value" + "restitution" = "buyback". I write that because the FTC tables use that term with restitution included. I'm not sure why they're not offering him vehicle value. According to the below this person can get the fix or turn in for vehicle value.That doesn't sound right. What it is is:
buyback value + restitution=full payment
If someone claimed the restitution, you should still get:
buyback value + no restitution=(just the buyback value)
This isn't VW paying out twice or anything like that, there's just two components to the payment
They seem to be playing hardball with salvaged cars which were totaled during an active VW lease, or where the eligible lessee never became an eligible owner. Their position seems to be that an eligible lessee was never entitled to a buyback. I would certainly appeal this decision with the CRC.I don’t know
Why would it matter if a prior owner was a lessee or not and whether or not that lessee received restitution or not? I don't read that condition anywhere nor do I understand the logic behind it. The new owner of the car that was purchased at auction and restored/titled should be eligible as per (iii) of page 40 of the Feb Claims Supervisor Report.Was the vehicle totaled while in an active VW lease?
I'm wondering how I would know this to be an issue for me as well?I got a email from Vw
Based on the documents and information you have provided as part of your claim with Reference No. xxxxxx, you are not eligible to participate in the 2.0-Liter Settlement Claims Program. The reason(s) for your ineligibility is described below.
Not member of class - You are not a member of the class.
Purchase the car with salvage title Ian 2017
Rebuilt car and title feb 2017
Open claim and provided all documents in mar 2017
After almost One year I got this answer and the claim has been erased from my portal.
The reason I’m not the member of class is because the car was open lease in 2016
Can somebody make me understand what’s going on
2.0, 3.0? What is the hx behind your claim? Was it ineligible and sent to CRC?Recieved fedex package at home today (wife opened): Offering $6800 restitution because vehicle is inoperable. What is the definition of operable? It USED to be that the engine would run and it would move under it's own power. What is it now? Sounds like appeal time (On the other hand, I'm tempted to call Copart and have them make an offer)
