I spoke with an owner of a VW dealership here in Oregon. He told me that if they were going to have the fixes ready, and the equipment, and the training for their people, they would have had large stores of Parts already at the dealership for the future fixes. He said they have zero parts and there's been no training for any of their service department people. He thought that that was not a good sign that there will not be a fix coming anytime soon. I am dismayed at this, because my car has been literally Flawless at 64000 miles, I've only spent $164 on an actual part that needed to be replaced, my rear latch electronic lock. And part of that money I used of the $300 amount, came from money left over on my Goodwill money. However, because they missed the first deadline on November 11th, the next deadline is January 27th of 2017. Because there is no fix yet, I'm likely to simply receive my buy back money and probably get a 2017 Wolfsburg Edition TSI Golf. I've already got a couple of dealerships down five thousand bucks from the MSRP, so I can get them a little lower and then I'll still have plenty of money left on my buyback cash package. I have not officially decided yet but I'm heavily leaning towards now, replacing my diesel Golf because of the news that came out yesterday in the fact that they're going to remove the infrastructure of diesel cars out of the US. Repair costs and part replacement costs, will only go up in cost. I'm bummed.
Are any of you going to get another VW to replace your TDI? Why or why not?
