      0% for 72 has certainly lots to do with it ...

      Can anyone in Canada comment on any available incentives? Will we get the same offering or get the shaft like usual

      i get it. but the other guys dealer had 24 and sold 22... in a week. thats a LOT of TDI's (considering public opinion of TDI's over the past year) going out the door in a short amount of time for one dealer.

      Thanks Hajduk! Does anyone know if dealers are obligated to let potential clients know about these incentives? I called a local dealer and they told me no incentives were available?

      Normal people have already forgotten about it for the most part. It is still clear to TCL because we see it on our screen every day still. Everyone else is now talking about Trump, Aaron Hernandez, etc.

      I made the decision because I can get rid of a lot of negative equity on my current car, get more miles for my .40 a mile work allotment, and am going to pay 0%. Add the extensive extended warranty and this is a deal I can't afford to pass up.

      And the fact that it might also make some Prius drivers shake their fists is just an added bonus.

      Remember.. the public opinion is the same one saying that Hillary would win. I am finding public opinion not worth what they charge for it.


      The folks who bought it because it was "clean"... have moved on... Now the true tdi folks are left. And when they run out, its over.

      I find this highly unbelievable.
      So VW spent how much time trying to figure out how to fix this issue without a dramatic performance drop before the EPA called for a stop sale, and couldn't....
      ...But now they did something and it ok per the EPA is is noticeably different?
      Either VW is so incompetent I wouldn't trust a toaster they designed, or the TDI fans are intentionally downplaying the performance hit because they want their beloved TDIs to become beloved again.

      That is possible. Could be filling themselves a little bit. Would def like to see some proof, dyno runs, etc.

      If these cars are selling as well as some claim here, then VW has some serious soul searching to do.

      They claim they are done with diesel models here in the USA, but it appears that the consumers are certainly NOT at all.

      I think we do know that most typical diesel customers are NOT interested in an electric car in any shape or form at this point and until batteries become much more advanced they are still just a novelty for people with money to burn....


      So VWoA and VW Canada I think you need to once again RETHINK the plans you have, or else your sales and customers
      are going to likely disappear.

      Sorrry, didn't mean to be too....mean in VW and TDI fans.
      Maybe VW was bluffing the EPA hoping the EPA would back down and EPA called their bluff...to avoid spending a grand or whatever in each car.
      Somebody needs to compare an original and post fix TDI of similar spec - more curious about mpg than hp.

      LOL it's just pent-up demand and there aren't many units for sale anyways.

      Exactly.. Not sure what the total number of available cars is in the US, but I think it is around 11k. If you consider how many people have already participated in the buyback it isn't surprising there is a high demand. I think this is reflective of the TDI loyalist/enthusiast rather than the general public. This is probably the last chance for anyone to own a "new" TDI from VW...ever...

      My buddy turned in his 2010 TDI, got the check and then bought a 2015 TDI.

      He is ridiculously happy. Paid something like $3k to own a car for 7 years, then gets a "new" one for 5k off and 0% for 72.

      in all honesty though if you're happy with the TDI, its a great deal.

      you made bank on the old one, and got what you know and love at a deep discount.

      I dont know that i agree that normal people have forgotten.

      I work with a bunch of normal people... and at the points I have mentioned the TDI buyback, etc... its always seemed like a negative interaction. They wouldnt want a car that VW lied about and broke the law to produce... no matter that VW has paid the price and is fixing them. Few of those "normal" people would have even considered a TDI before, I would venture that (in my circle) this number is closing in on zero who would consider one now.

      Just because Trump has the headlines doesnt mean people forget isht like this.

      Now. I can see where some people will forgive. And in some cases, that might be a smart choice.
      But IMO, for your situation, there is likely a better way to get out of your current car/negative equity situation then to jump into a fixed VW TDI. The future of these cars reliability, performance, and resale are huge unknowns at this point.

      Seems to me the argument to jump into a AEM fixed VW TDI instead of say a CPO Prius or Volt seems more emotional than financial/logical. (thumbing your nose a prius drivers)

      I love VW TDI's, more than most... but the future of these cars is speculation.

      i want the fix to not affect anything negatively.

      Well I talked to multiple customers this week through my job (sales) conversationally about buying the car and not one of them really had anything to say one way or the other. Mentioning the scandal mostly got blank looks. Maybe because your coworkers have heard you talk about your TDI over the past year and a half you are getting a different reaction. I won't even get into the argument about whether or not the general public has a short memory...you can have your opinion and I have mine.

      There is nothing emotional about this purchase so I am not sure where you are getting that. This will be the first diesel car I will ever own - and probably the last.

      And why would I buy a used Prius or Volt when I would pay higher interest and I have no interest in driving either one of those cars 40k miles a year? It was a joke about Prius owners anyway so try to not to be so serious. My best friend since high school has driven Prius' for years and I always give him good natured ribbing about it.

      I also have an EXCELLENT VW dealership that I have bought my last three cars from and get most of my service done there after finding out their pricing is on par or in some cases less than an indy shop I had been using. The service writers go out of their way to make sure repairs are done quickly, they give me "coupons" off of service work because I go there all of the time, and always have a new loaner available for me whenever the need arises.

      Yet you state that there IS demand. Pent up demand at least. I say that those consumers will continue to exist.
      Also true that MOST consumers either don't know about the EPA issues or don't care one way or another.

      Many folks including myself feel that the EPA has overreached and been too invasive in its mission.

      It's amusing to me how many car buyers drop their guard when a manufacturer offers 0% financing. It's such a great tool for car companies, because it immediately allows them to charge more for a car, while the car buyer who thinks he is a financial guru is totally thrilled either way.

      youre virtually always better off taking the rebates and 1-2% financing

      Yup, but that never stops the 0% guy from bragging about how great his loan is.

      For 2 dollar difference a month, I would take the higher payment with the lower loan amount. Always closer to the payoff in case of trade in or total loss.
