Special Deals for VW Diesel Owners

November 3, 2016

Hyundai and Volvo are both offering special deals for owners affected by Volkswagen's diesel emissions settlement. (see table at end of article to view qualifying vehicles)

Hyundai is offering Friends & Family Plus pricing to current and previous owners of a 2.0-liter TDI involved in the recent class settlement. The deal includes a discount off dealer invoice, plus $1,250 bonus on top of any current factory offers.

Volvo is offering a free 5-year, 50,000 mile "Safe and Secure" extended warranty valued at $1,700. In addition to the warranty, it includes complimentary maintenance, free roadside assistance, and wear & tear coverage for brakes, rotors and wiper blades.

Volvo is also offering a $750 credit and 7-year/100,000 mile warranty on certified pre-owned Volvos.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see the best deals being offered in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
