    As the Diesel Emits: Audi Might Have To Buy Back 25,000 Q7s


    • It was thought that Audi wouldn't need to do a buyback for the 3.0L TDI V6. That appears to be wrong.

    It was thought that the 3.0L TDI V6 used primarily in Audi vehicles (along with the Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg) would not have to be bought back unlike the 2.0L TDI four-cylinder. But this might not be the case for a select group of vehicles.

    German newspaper Der Spiegel reports that Audi could buy back 25,000 vehicles - older Q7 SUVs - because these vehicles cannot be fixed and will need to be bought back. This comes from preliminary discussions between Audi U.S. authorities about a possible fix for the engine.

    "We are working hard with U.S. regulators to reach an agreement an approved resolution for affected 3.0-liter V-6 TDI vehicles and thank our customers for their continued patience. The Court has scheduled a status conference for November 3, 2016 to discuss the matter further," said Audi in a statement to Automotive News.

    How cool is it to be an Audi owner right now? Drove that POS for a year or two.. hated the BS going into and out of service constantly.. then finding out that the Kraut Bastards that sold it to U had to buy it back.. so U could go and buy a superior GM or Ford product. 8)

    They will talk these 25,000 people into buying a new Q7 with the turbo 4 so that they can have their 1487th consecutive month of sales gains.

    That's also what I think. There will be some sale gain to brag about for VW. Financially, though, it will be another story for the company...
