Nice, way to get it done Mythdoc.

I would have been very satisfied but, of course, based on the severity of my injuries, I will need more compensation in order to be healed. I am going to write to the court about it for sure.

More satisfied than not, but I wish the mileage adjustment was less penalizing. For those that were planning to keep theirs for 200K miles it makes the decision a little harder because the bribe is smaller if they were already above 100K miles on a 2012.

Currently I am very satisfied. Based on my calculations including buyback of my warranty and the grand sorry we screwed you money, I'm about a grand under my total cost including all taxes/fees. Not bad for driving/having the touareg for 5+years (potentially up to 7 years 5 months).


What gets me up there is the mileage adjustment. I will be getting the 7300 by the time I turn it in + the 8.49% tax bonus.

Much more satisfied than not. It's time to move on, one of the best posts so far IMHO...it's a first world problem...not worth anymore of my time, other than filling out the paperwork. But I will miss my Touareg TDI, what a great ride, and will hold on to it until late 2018 to make my final decision.

More satisfied than not. I agree with Skyfree, i've been driving my 2012 pretty hard and just crossed 93K miles yesterday. I will still be selling it back and not keeping it but wish the mileage hit wasn't as bad as it is as i don't have the option to let it sit.

Gen 2 Owner: As I stated earlier, on the mega-thread, I believe that close to $10 of "Ooops, we're sorry" money can't hurt, and an extended warranty after a "fix" is just icing on the cake. Even better, the fix does not "work", you still get $$$$$. For Gen 1 owners.....do not even ****ing complain.

Satisfied! With life changing, I will be getting more than if I were to sell it if DG did not happen. Kind of had a sour taste with the timing chain tensioner issue. When buying parts that were updated from the factory ones and there not being a warranty recall on such an important part is BS in my book on any caliber vehicle let alone this one. If it wasn't a problem, there wouldn't have been the R&D of a stronger part. It will be missed, but glad the stress will be gone.
