It's a shame that VW lost our trust like that.

News outlets are reporting we're getting $5k for each affected vehicle. Still not enough I think.

Since the fix for some is an increase in ad blue mix at the exhaust would like to see free ad blue for life. Just a thought.

So I get that many are unhappy but I love my T-reg TDI and VW gave me $1000 so far. I checked on KBB and a TDI is still worth ~$5k more than a gas T-reg.

I'm not thrilled with VW's actions but if they give me another $2-5k, I'd be very happy. To me it's just free $$$ and as long as I don't have to sell my TDI back, it's all good for me.

AdBlue is about $4 a gallon so free AdBlue for life isn't much to speak of - free oil changes, now that's something more substantial.

Agreed. For the Cayenne, I am expecting something more than just a key chain or more years warranty. 5K would be great, would love it Oil changes for free would be great (they are pricey)... If they stop selling the Diesels for a while now, I am expecting that they will not go down in price but rather the opposite. But I am not thinking of selling - we have just 25K on our Pepe and love the car, everything about it...

Just got new shoes, Nitto Grapplers V2. The first set lasted 25K miles. Did I mention that this car is either towing or offroading

That's kind of what we're worried about - getting forced to sell back our Treg. Well not worried just carefully watching what VW does.

Agree with the cost wrt adblue but it's a direct relationship to how the could fix the emissions issue by increasing the amount of adblue that is injected into the system in order to reduce the particulates in the exhaust. So as a direct corollary to the fox that would be the next logical choice of compensation.

But I would love free oil changes for life too

Toureg TDi

I am seriously interested in trading up my 2014 Passat TDi for a Toureg TDi now that we are closing in on the buy back / compensation program. My 20-ft Flying Cloud is rated at 5,000/631lb (towing/tongue) while the Toureg is rated at 7,700/617lb.

Any thoughts on the tongue rating issue would be greatly appreciated. What is the best way to contact Can-Am?

The Europeans use an 8% tongue rating for tongue weight, that's where the 616 lbs tongue weight came from. In the US, we use a 10% rating which would put you at a 770 lbs tongue weight. A Touareg OEM hitch can handle the weight and the TDI can pull the load.

I also am looking around, ready to react when the offer comes. When I bought my 2015 Passat TDI, my plan was to enjoy for a couple of years until retired, then trade up to Touareg TDI, plus AS 23 and travel. Then all this happened. Since the 2015 Passat does have a DEF container, hoping we are not simply offered andengineering re-programing (if possible), but the choice of that or a direct buyout rumored to be the only option for earlier models. I would probably choose a cash buyout over repair, as it would resolve trade-in issues on the next purchase and with those repairable models VW could then sell as used rather than scrap. The other big problem, I don't see any Touareg TDI available as apparently being held back until the issue with the 3.0 is resolved. Are they even in the country, or will the pipeline have to be filled? That may relegate me to the #2 choice, either the Jeep GC diesel or Ram 1500 diesels.

That's how it went for us this spring. We have had two Jetta TDI's, still have one and they have been extraordinary cars, saved us a bundle on fuel costs over the past 15 years. Our 2006 TDI looks and drives like new.

We had waited for the Touareg TDI problem to be resolved for several months. Never happened and no reliable predictions if or when it would. We went shopping for Jeep GC EcoD and Durango Hemi models, however they could not even come close to the discounts and incentives of the Ram EcoD, so we bought one. It's fantastic, I like the shorter wheelbase of the SUV's much better, but otherwise the Ram is serving us very well.

thanks Mojo for explaining the difference in European and US tongue weight capacity calc's, just another fact domestic VW dealers are clueless about.

Doug, I have been eyeing the MB diesel Sprinter passenger van with 5000/500lb tow/tongue ratings. any thoughts on matching up the Sprinter with my flying cloud 20ft (5000/630lb)? drove a Roadtrek Sprinter 11,000 miles last summer and can't stop thinking about that 3L diesel.

tizeye - I'll let you know if I decide to purchase a 2014/2015 Touareg TDI in central Fla area. seems that owners here are not discounting them yet.
