I was vilified by some to most on this diesel thread. However the VW TDI's & life are great ! While it's always an option to get the (TBD) fix/es and keep the car (2009 VW TDI w/120,000 miles) the buy back option is just incredible !!
Interesting NHTSA 2014 statistics! http://www-fars.nhtsa.dot.gov/Main/index.aspx
274.8 M registered passenger vehicles!
Is that another way of saying that cars like that, and cars you drive are actually powered by gassers?
News!? VW 3.0 TDI fix. The $ 500. debit use anywhere & $ 500. .use @ applicable dealer & VW Roadside Assist has been offered.
I wonder when/if the $5000 for VW being bad will be dispensed ? If they BB $$ the 2009 VW Jetta TDI, I'd be interested in the latest used TDI models 3.0 L they could sell.
The lemmings are out in full force on VW diesel gate ! https://www.yahoo.com/news/vw-may-nearing-fix-dieselgate-154500550.html?nhp=1
I thought this was pretty hilarious: get better MPG ? Nah... Ford got a patent to ...fake it with the noise ! ? I guess those early Honda rice rocketeers were on to something when they said decals made more horsepower http://www.hybridcars.com/ford-patent-suggests-fake-engine-noises-can-save-fuel/ ?
One (good) way to look at it/the issue is/are to ask the question/s:
How many OEM's have given somebody/one:
IRS $1,200 tax credit to buy (2009 VW Jetta TDI) ,(3 yr/36,000 warranty, 36,000 miles dealer included maintenance) 2 each $500 debit cards, two 3 yr. road assist packages (AAA costs 250 per year) , ($1,500 to $ 7,000) in HPFP repairs, & IF the articles are correct $ 5,000 & a buy back, on a sub $20,000 vehicle to drive (in our case 140,000 miles) ? ???!!! I literally walked out the door with just my signature (well that was a mistake, I should have gotten the sig other) . Monies were zero % (?) 7 years ago.
So right now, I don't know what the buyback numbers are. Right now, the above #s are approximately $ 8,700 + plus. IF the buy back number is $ 8,950, as per more than one article says it might be, this VW would have cost $2,350 (depreciation) to drive. (7 years 140,000) Aka, $27.98 per mo 1,667 miles per mo.
So help me (peel grapes) ladies/fellas ! Where can I get a better deal like that going forward?
Hollywood can resuscitate the concept of the " one armed man ", made famous in the hit show "The Fugitive" The slant will be a computer coding genius (irony: one handed) takes on diesel computer cheating for extra money?
