VW submits 2.0L emissions refit proposal; Audi to handle 3.0L fix | LeftLaneNews

W met with the agencies last week to discuss the tentative plan to bring the 2.0-liter TDI engines into compliance with government emissions regulations, however the company is not yet publicly disclosing specific details, according to Edmunds.

The company is expected to implement expensive hardware modifications in some of the vehicles outfitted with the offending four-cylinder engine. Most lack a urea-injection system to help minimize nitrogen oxide output.


Audi believes the 3.0 sedans and SUVs can be fixed with new software.

I just bought a Jetta Sport wagon TDI to replace my 300D. NICE free oil changes for life and 500 cash back and 500 dealer credit and 3 years of roadside assist.

Excellent!
I dont think you get the goodwill package stuff though, unless this was all given to you by the dealer.

For goodwill stuff to work you need to have purchased vehicle prior to dieselgate

the email said I was getting it, I think they're trying to get them off the lots quickly

The salesman told me some are being traded in just on the Green Diesel issue alone. fine with me, got a good deal out of it.

Pretty sweet deal!
Did you go six manual or DSG?

I find the over reactions on the emissions thing hilarious. As if VW was the only company to do this and its all so shocking

Hell, it isnt even their first time getting caught cheating

the big three got busted for the same damn thing, got the DSG, would of gone manual but Mrs Drago was adamant about having auto. the oil change for life is sweeet. with Synthetic going for 4 or more a quart on sale and changing the oil looks like a pita to do in your driveway its hard to beat.

Yeah that lifetime oil change thing is a great part of the deal. The oil filter on the 2.0 is a bit of a pain to snake out, and the encapsulation panel has i think 12 or 14 screws on our passat at least. Bit of a pain on ramps

DSG is as far as automatics go, pretty nice. Took me a while to get used to the auto downshift, and the design of the transmission fascinates me over traditional planetary gears.
Dont forget 40 tranny oil changes!

You should post a pic of the car

I'd bring it back if their just going to retro fit a DEF system, but if they want to tweak the ECU, it ain't gonna happen voluntarily
