PS. How do I know? Purchased my '14 TDI Touareg from a VW dealer. When I test drove it, it did not have emissions test applied. Put deposit, got credit approved. Just before delivery, they delayed it by 2 days to do emissions test. Now VW says I can't get anything because the vehicle was not in my possession when the fix was applied.
Really sneaky. We'll see what happens, I have appealed that decision.
They are correct. VW dealers cannot sell a vehicle that has not had the fix applied. It would also be financially foolish for them to sell vehicles, assume the new owner would file for payment, return to have the fix applied, and to pay them when they did. It would also violate the terms of the settlement agreement. There are probably some huge fines associated with that.
