    As the Diesel Emits: EPA Gives the Go-Ahead for Volkswagen To Sell Repaired TDI Models

    Can Volkswagen interest you in a fixed TDI?

    More good news for Volkswagen as the EPA has finally given the ok for the company to start selling repaired TDI vehicles. Bloomberg has learned from Volkswagen Group of America spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan that dealers can sell TDI models from the 2015 model year once they have been updated with new software. The fix will also include new hardware for the diesel engine, but dealers don't have to wait for the parts to come in early next year.

    "We are still finalizing the details of this program and will provide more information on its implementation at the appropriate time,” said Ginivan.

    It should be noted this is only a symbolic step as only 67,000 vehicles are eligible for this - 12,000 of which are currently sitting on dealer lots. The big question is whether or not anyone is interested in buying a Volkswagen TDI vehicle considering all of the trouble it has brought.

    PASS, I bet they end up having to deep discount them and then only hard core diesel fans will then buy.

    Gonna be very hard to sell in Washington as the state has termed these auto's as non-compliant and as such you have to pay an extra fee yearly to drive them. Nothing like being nailed hundreds of dollars to drive a polluting auto. I doubt they will be around here as our tabs are already expensive.

    We've got multiple deposits on just about every remaining new 2015 we have. It's going to be nuts seeing how sales of these things go.

    I think they will sell pretty quickly.
