Trouble? None. That appears to be a great price. My only concern would be where you live. If you live in a non emissions check state and I wanted one that would appear to be a great buy.looking at a tdi golf sports wagon on car.com 2015 with 3000 miles only for $20000, what kind of trouble can I get into if i buy this vehicle.
I used to think the same, but from an engineering perspective, a diesel is a poor choice for a hybrid, where the engine constantly turns off and on, which is something inherently cold-blooded diesels do not like to do.I'm hoping this is still somewhat related to the thread. While the TDI in the Sportwagen is in limbo, I would hope that VW would offer their hybrid as an option to the Sprotwagen models. Having a lower fuel usage option in a car that is so deserving of it should continue. Perhaps they will eventually get to the best option - a hybrid diesel in the Sportwagen!

The $5000 amount being quoted isn't set in stone, and I wouldn't be surprised if the amount differs by year/model. Have to wait for something official. All these unnamed sources may or may not be correct.VW to pay US customers $5,000 each to settle dieselgate: Die Welt
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Passat is included in the list, but was not named. It was named as one of the TDI models included in the approx. 488,000 affected vehicles when they originally announced the diesel problem back in Sept. 2015. I hope it is, as I would like to have that option if I don't like the fix they propose.
