|Greazydiesel||If you ask me it doesn't look like VW's management has been using their heads for quite some time. I would think that if you're slick enough to rig your cars to cheat on the emissions you should at least be ready with a fix in case your busted. It's obvious that VW's management has not yet recovered from the big shakeup and I doubt they really have a clue what their dealers in the states are up to.|

You would think that they should be able to find a used part for you with all the buybacks just sitting on a lot.

We loved our 10 tdi. Just needed more room.
I find it hard to believe they can't find anything wrong.
Deadline for the buyback is the end of the year, isnt it?

|Greazydiesel||On my wife's car both the ABS and DSG transmission has gone haywire, sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. It's a VW diesel and even the dealer can't fix it, luckily we still have the dieselgate buyback option. On the bright side, dealing with this crap has helped me talk her into getting a classic car because she knows I can fix them myself.|

"Talking" oil filler cap
Computerized diesels get more interesting day by day. Just saw where Perkins diesels in construction equipment come with an oil filler cap that tells your smart phone when it's time for an oil change. Also, the latest semi tractors combine a GPS with cruise control which records repeated routes. Then on cruise control, the automated (automatically shifted)manual transmission downshifts or upshifts for max power and fuel economy. MAGIC STUFF!!
