      My serious guess would be Mexico, especially with the alignment of a North American Region.

      They won't be until the price is drastically reduced and they have a 500 mile cruising range........

      I'm not familiar with Bug Motors, but there used to be a company out of Nogales, AZ (right on the border with Nogales, Sonora, MX) that would take a Beetle chassis (I believe from '66 to '73),...

      Well-written post. I understand the deceit issue, and as a huge VW fan (CL definition: fanboy, apologist:rolleyes:) I too am disappointed in what they did. But I sincerely believe they have...

      I've never owned a TDI, but as a longtime VW guy, I remain loyal to the brand. The media is filled with biased journalists that are blowing this whole thing way out of proportion. Yes, VW cheated and...

      I despise the Patina look, painted or wrapped. I don't get the fascination with people deliberately making their cars look like a rusted out POS. When I see something like this at car shows, I walk...

      This. I miss a lot of things about the 1970s.....The music was better, TV shows were better, people were more laid-back, etc. But when it comes to cars, today's offerings are FAR superior. I laugh...

      My wife needs a new SUV. She drives a 2003 Nissan Pathfinder with 153K miles, lots of rust, and no traction control offered in those days. A local Kia dealership constantly advertises insane offers...

      It may not sound like it, but I agree the law is the law and that VW was foolish to try to pull the wool over anyone's eyes, but I still believe that we've come to live an an overly-paranoid society...

      They won't be sold unless they're fixed. Otherwise, I'd guess with the NA alignment, they'll go to Mexico.

      I have no intention of selling it. I'm merely going by KBB trade-in, which is what most dealers in my area use. 100K Base model that's 11 years old or not, I'm certain that if not for DG, it would...

      As I tried to point out in the big thread with 7500 replies, what pisses me off the most is the emissions that the affected Volkswagens produced would have been perfectly acceptable 20 years ago,...

      They are. I have a 2005 Passat GL, 107K with auto and leather as the only options, and KBB says Trade In @ Good condition is $998. A few months ago, it was down to about $650. but as this mess gets...

      I'm a bit confused.....Is the plan to buy back the cars PLUS give everyone $5K for their trouble? I would now guess that with the NA alignment, the US cars they buy back will maybe be re-sold in...

      The most I've seen off MSRP on my local lot is perhaps $4000, so if they were 30% discounted, that means the car in question would have a sticker of around $13,300. You might have been able to get a...

      I disagree. Since diesels made up 22-25% of VW's US car sales and they're only down 12%, this means gas models as a whole have actually increased, whether one argues that just one model is carrying...
