Good deal. I couldn't figure out how to replace the 40+ mpg mine got, as I'm scheduled to sell it back to VW as part of the scandal settlement. Now I just need them to dream up a "loyalty" program with sweet incentives to win back my business, and I can return to the good life of 600+ miles per tank.

Did you buy one after the scandal was announced and still get a settlement deal? If so good gamble. My neighbor got a ridiculously good deal.

I made an attempt at one but it didn't work out. Some guy bought 1400+ Infected vw diesels prior to the settlement, that's a nice payday there. VW is buying them back at pre scandal value plus 20% restitution. I've owned mine since 2013. I really let it go to shit since the scandal broke, so I'm making out like a bandit. VW is paying me 26k+ for a car that needs about 4k worth of work, to ready it for sale,,,and in a world where the scandal never happened I'd guess it'd only be worth 13-15k tops.

Yeah. That's a pretty good deal. I figured that they'd look at the date on the title and minimize the payout for people who bought the car after the scandal broke.

So they'll run like American cars of 1974.
