VW Agrees to Buy Back Diesel Cars
If you currently own a 2009 - 2015 diesel Volswagen, you may finally be getting compensated for the diesel-cheating scandal. Volkswagen agreed to buy back nearly 500,000 diesel cars as part of a settlement with the Environmental Protection Agency.
Details will be finalized this summer, and owners of Volkswagen and Audi-brand 2.0-liter diesel cars will receive “substantial compensation”, either through a buyback or combination of fix and cash payout.
Nothing has been decided yet for owners of Audi, Porsche, or Volkswagen vehicles with larger 3.0-liter V-6 TDI engines. Rumors suggest Volkswagen will provide $5,000 compensation for those owners.
