Did they close the used market on them too?
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Doesn't look like it. I see some listed on local vw dealership sites.

No but with all of this mess still unresolved who would buy one?

Some folks that live in California are having issues renewing the registrations on their VW diesels because of this mess.

Wow!

There is lots of good information in all of the links above.  It is highly recommended reading if you want to know the facts.

(note that this is from one of the TDI links that C provided...)


Hmmmm.   I wonder if I should do that with car tires, car oils, car filters, BMWs, and wabbits?

If you live in a state that doesn't have exhaust check every year they might be a really good buy right now. Or better yet, go to CA where there might be a problem registering it, make low ball offer and bring it back to a state like TX.  ;)

What's wrong with wabbits?    ???

I'm pretty sure that it's going to be a federal issue and that all the registered VW diesels will have to be 'fixed'.

I loved my 78 diesel Wabbit. Max speed was about 80 mph but it got 57 mpg in town. I put an aux tank in the spare tire well for a total of 20 gal and drove it once from San Jose CA to Grants NM without stopping for fuel.

I got my Goodwill package in the mail too. It looks like accepting this limits your ability to sue them. You can only go through arbitration in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. So I am still hoping that they also make up the difference that the car values lost after all this. Approaching $3000 at this point.

I'm pretty sure that the standard language in fine print you're talking about refers to the terms of use for the credit card.

First line of the fine print.

"Affected customers eligible for the Goodwill Package are not required to waive their rights or release their claims against Volkswagen in order to receive the package."

I read a lot of different articles about the Goodwill Offer. They all sounded a lot like this one.

I paid a visit to the local VW dealer yesterday and activated my two $500 cards plus the 3 year roadside assistance. It was painless.    :)
