I have one of the cheating 2011 VW Golf diesels. They now have a fix for it, or they will buy it back. They estimate the buyback at $21,706 (online). If I go to the local VW dealer's website, they have used 2015 TDI Golfs available for less than that. I had previously decided to just get it fixed (they'll give me $6,106 for my troubles). But now it seems like I can get a much newer car basically as a trade-in.
Obviously, the most frustrating thing here is that I had made a decision and now I have to make it again.
