We're not worthy, it seems.

I hope so. April 21st is the new deadline. Some have mentioned they may be ordered to buy them all back. Hopefully for better than ACV/ Bluebook values like Dodge Rams just offered last year. My Bluebook value took about a $6000 hit compared to the other cars I had. I was trading them in every year. This year wasn't doable.

Finally!!!!

As of yesterday the word is out on what's going to happen with VW diesels.

If your car is effected the first thing to do is to find the numbers here.

https://www.ftc.gov/sites/default/files/pdf/att._1a_-_buyback_modification_table.pdf

Then you go here to find out what your mileage adjustment is. 

https://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/cases-proceedings/162-3006/volkswagen-group-america-inc

The two choices are, keep your car along with some cash from VW and wait for a fix that will degrade the cars performance (no one knows how much as the fix is still in the works). Or you can sell it back to VW.

For my car after running the numbers (if I did the calculations right). 2012 Jetta Sportwagen w/nav & sunroof, DSG ~ 41k miles. If I keep the car and wait for a fix, VW will pay me $6,500. If I sell it back to VW they'll pay me $24k.

What would you do? I'm leaning toward selling it back.

What would it bluebook for if there wasn't a problem? What did it cost new?

I wonder if that emissions scandal by VW has been put to bed yet.....?

I actually do the blanking for the entire VW Polo for a living.  Don't know if you guys in the States know it....They are bringing out a new model next year, and I don't even wanna know how much that is gonna go for...

Being right next door to the GM factory, for whom I also do some blanking, I'm an Isuzu man myself. Diesel of course...

Personally I think the VW is overpriced and overrated. (Might just get a smack from Kwakrider on this one, as he works for VW....)

It is what it is....If not, it must be something else.

I would sell it back to them for $24K.
I think after the "fix" (which I suppose you have to agree to if you keep it) the mileage and performance won't be what you are accustomed to/expect, and with many gasser mileage ratings approaching the possible expected post fix result I think you can drive a long time with a newer gas powered vehicle from a lot of different brands.
On the older side of things, my tank averages for the 2001 TDI since March have been all over 52 mpg and most at or approaching 55 mpg. The 2003 conversion/transplant project (TDI into a 1.8T chassis) hasn't gotten much attention the last several months. I intend to keep them going as long as possible, but corrosion will be the life ending factor barring another major accident.

There are so many more interesting choices for diesel powered vehicles across the pond(s).

I'll have to dig out my paperwork to see what I paid for this thing. The prices for the buyback come from September of last year, right before the **** hit the fan on the emissions scandal, plus an additional cash payout from VW for 'pain and suffering'.

I'm almost positive that I'll sell it back to VW. Looks like I have some car shopping to do.
