BUT, it mentions 500K affected vehicles. Leaving out the Passat was an oversight.Prior value plus $5,000.
However this only lists Golf, Jetta and Audi A3 for buyback. No word on the Passats or any 3.0 vehicles.
Dealers already have 2016's on the lot. But with the old software. There are a bunch of TDIs in a mall parking lot near me.....overflow parking for quarantined TDIs.....sitting there with their rotors rusting. With a software update, they are probably good to go. But I wouldn't want one of those. I will be looking for a recent build date.Maybe the 2016 TDIs might make it to the dealership in time for this buyback?
I am assuming it was mileage when you brought the car in to get the $500 cards, that is why they recorded it then.BUT, it mentions 500K affected vehicles. Leaving out the Passat was an oversight.
Looks like July will be the get well date with buy back at pre-dieselgate blue book value + a "substantial" settlement.
How will they calculate the mileage then, will it be based on the miles on the car sept 15, or miles when it gets to the dealership?
Either way, the Passat is history. Hard to walk away from 50 MPG over the last 60K miles but the turbo issue scares me. I hope that VW dealerships will have an added incentive to purchase new VW's. The Golf GTI looks neat! Oh and I still have that $500 for "Stuff"!
Get rid of that piece of junkGot a 2009 TDI JETTA. ALREADY CHANGE THE TURBO ONCE.. MY MILEAGE IS 210K. MY AC NEEDS TO BE REPLACED..ABOUT 1k.. should I fix it or not since they are buying back the car. I like the car... or the value they buy back will be cheaper because of the AC. I also..add some Led lights at the front vent panel underneath the headlights . would there be any problem?
Not weeks......months.Invest nothing in maintaining the tdi from now until resolution. The latter will take weeks to be finalized then a few more to get it operating at dealerships.
In the meantime, if you plan on sticking with VW, go test drive a gasser or two.
"The judge set the June 21 deadline for VW and the other parties to nail down the final details before the agreement faces a public comment period. It would need final judicial approval before taking effect."
We're in the dark for 2 more months, then they'll make the details of the plan known, then there'll be a public comment period, then judicial approval......THEN we'll be able to accept a buy-back (or whatever.)
I have 195k miles on my original brakes. Hope they hold up until fall....
