If you bought or leased a Volkswagen TDI on or before September 15, 2015, you are probably eligible to receive a buyback offer from Volkswagen.
The buyback comes as compensation for the hassle of driving a car affected by the biggest scandal in automotive history. 2009-2015 Volkswagens and Audis equipped with the 2.0-liter diesel engine are eligible for a buyback of roughly $12,400-$44,000, depending on the year and model of the car.
Buybacks started this month and, as of October 18, about 340,000 people have signed up to accept the offer. This opens up the question:
What will happen to the hundreds of thousands of cars that Volkswagen buys back?
