VW realizes that this isn't an especially good time to be perceived as trying to **** over its customers. I'm surprised the offer doesn't a free kitten and a *******.

FWIW: VW claims accepting the package WILL NOT prevent one from engaging in future litigation, or waive any responsibility of the manufacturer for the "defects".

Incentives > negative news in regards to the company.

My dad bought a 2016 GTI with the power pack and dynamic suspension control and OTD paid 28k on a car normally worth 32k before taxes/delivery.

He had 4k in incentives from the dealer for their "loyalty" program that recently ended.

That GTI is truly amazing. Amazing power delivery, no boost lag, a really well done electronic locking differential rather than the brake actuated diff they are putting in new models, the clutch is perfect, and the suspension fixed every gripe I had on the MK6 model range(my Sportwagen). The comfort mode is so god damn comfy I felt like I was in a Cadillac.

He is averaging 28mpg with a lot of hard driving, full WOT and redlining it often. Pretty impressive to say the least.

MY dealers lot is EMPTY. I think I saw 20 cars on the lot total. Before the TDI stop sale it had over 80 cars on the lot. Shows how much of their sales were TDI related. I hear/read a lot of dealers are worried about inventory with the coming holidays as VW doesn't have enough non TDI models to supply dealers.

Also ,those affected by the recall can claim their reimbursement from VW ($500 gift card to be used on VW related purchases & $500 to use as you will), here is the link, I just registered myself for it and need to stop by the dealer to get it taken care of.

due to this...


Quote:
I took my Sportwagen in for the misfueling guard(required for the 120k fuel pump warranty extension) and after specifically telling them I was only there for that, some intrepid tech decided to overwrite my Stage 2 Malone tune with the ECU update recall causing almsot every warning bell in the car to go off(no EGR/DPF etc).

Luckily the service manager is footing the overnight shipping bill to Boraparts in Oregon for the reflash and they gave me a Passat loaner car until it comes back....phew! Luckily they took care of me so there is no hard feelings.

I was laughing though, as this is the first time I have let the dealership touch my car since I purchased it with 150 miles on the clock. Too funny!(in a crying way)
After driving around in a 2.5 SE Passat the past couple days....I'll say two things.


1) That 2.5l 5 cylinder motor has a lot of low end grunt. I was initially disappointed with the power but around town with the tiptronic shifting in the meat of the power band, not bad for a daily! I can see why people turbo charge these things, starting it with it as a base rather than the 2.0l 4 cylinder.

People are making serious power with a lot of lower end tq with custom turbo setups on the motors.

2) Holy crap that engine is quiet. I had to double check that the car was even running at times.

The video got cut off right before the guy was supposed to say "engine power output will not be affected"

flow straighteners are common. 2001 miata had one:
