On 27 NOV 2017, Chapman VW, in Tucson AZ, notified my wife and I that the three 2016 VW Touareg TDIs they had were now available for sale. On Saturday, 02 DEC 2017, we closed the deal on the 2016 VW Touareg TDI Executive they had. Finally, this past Monday, 04 DEC 2017, we took possession of it.
It is our understanding that the fix was only a software fix. No hardware was modified, added to, or deleted from the vehicle.
The SUV had the all of 184 miles on it when we drove it off the lot. It now has about 380 miles on it.
So far, we have no regrets regarding our purchase and feel extremely lucky we were able to purchase it. We plan on keeping it for a very long time.
