    Brand New 2015 Volkswagen TDI Models Back On Sale


    • Want a brand new 2015 Volkswagen TDI?

    If the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal hasn't swayed you from wanting one, then you'll be happy to hear Volkswagen will once again be able to sell brand-new 2015 model year TDI models. Green Car Reports says near 11,000 TDI models will soon be back up for sale once they are updated with new software, making them legal.

    Volkswagen does caution those interested in picking up a new TDI to call their nearest dealership to see if they have any in stock.

    But that's not all. Volkswagen is offering some massive discounts on these models. CarsDirect reports that Volkswagen is offering 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy. Interested in leasing one? Volkswagen will offer a cash bonus of $8,500. 

    There are a couple of caveats to this offer. First, you need to have an excellent credit history to qualify for either offer. Second is that Volkswagen isn't advertising this offer.

    "We will not be advertising the available incentives from our financing arm as they [sic] vehicle availability will vary per dealership," said Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan.

    So by word of mouth they will dump the Diesels on the market and call it good. Good offers if you can find one that meets your needs. Wonder where the bulk of the diesels are?

    I just checked autotrader and I didn't see anything available yet. I see the golf wagons that are TDI's but I feel like they have been there for awhile...

    You do not have to have excellent credit to get these deals. That's a load of BS.

    Also, not all dealers are giving up this cash. Ours is selling for MSRP or bust. We'll see how that works out.

    From what I gathered, Boston/ New York area.

    :huh: That makes no sense considering they are a couple years old and have been sitting. Nope if they want me to consider buying one, then 10K off to start.

    Oh, I'd totally agree....they need quite the markdown to get me to even think about it.....

    But I get the feeling dealerships will take advantage though....

    I wouldn't mind a nicely loaded Passat TDI for those deals.

     

    Right color, right price could talk me into one.....8)

    My friend Aaron got a very good deal on a 2015 TDI wagon.  I still miss mine, sold it back about 7 weeks ago.

    It got 58 Miles per gallon on a highway trip right before I sold it back...

    As far as the older TDI's go, a bunch have been coming through flattened on flat bed trucks at a towing lot near my daughters school. TDI Cup Jetta, Beetle Covnertible, several other interesting older Vee dubs flat as a pancake...

    Ya mean they actually crushed them? Wonder if they were models that could not be fixed cheaply.

    None of the first gen models have the ad Blue and will not be able to be repaired easily.  methinks VW may well crush up to about half of what it is buying back...they are not going to fix and resell a car that is 7 year sold with 100,000 plus miles on it.

    Interesting, yea I would agree that if an auto has 100K miles on it and needs more than a software flash upgrade, it is not worth it so recycle the auto.

    The last thing VW needs right now is more legal liability.

      The rivalry of the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang has been going for ages in the U.S. But now this fight has expanded into China.
      Automotive News reports that a growing group of Chinese buyers are being drawn towards to these models as the exude the no-apologies Americana attitude.
      "We're seeing the beginning of a muscle car culture here. Something that is uniquely American appeals to the Chinese consumer. The image that it relays to the automotive public is very positive," said James Chao, a China market auto analyst with IHS Markit.
      Sales of both models are small with Chevrolet only moving 2,000 Camaros since its launch 2011. Ford is doing slightly better with 6,200 Mustangs sold since its launch in 2015. In the first quarter, Mustang sales saw a 90 percent increase to 963 vehicles. Part of the reason for the slow sales comes down to the price. The Camaro starts about 399,900 yuan (about $58,000) - more than double of the base price of $26,900 in the U.S. The Mustang isn't that far behind, costing about $15 dollars less. Prices are increased due to a 25 percent import tariff on U.S. made vehicles, homologation and shipping fees, and Chinese buyers trending to splurge on higher-time models.
      But despite the low sales, the Camaro and Mustang are bringing buyers to dealers. These models act as eye candy to help draw shoppers into showrooms with the hope they'll purchase a vehicle, where it be the eye candy or something a little less exciting.

      One question that we have found ourselves wondering is who blew the whistle on the software cheat Volkswagen was using on their TDI models. A new book says it was someone at Volkswagen of America.
      Automotive News got their hands on Faster, Higher, Farther: The Volkswagen Scandal by New York Times reporter Jack Ewing. In the book, Ewing reveals that the head of VW’s Engineering and Environmental Office in the U.S., Stuart Johnson revealed the existence of the cheat to federal authorities. Johnson was the primary contact for the various regulation agencies in the U.S. and would be one of the people on the front lines when the scandal unfolded.
      In the book, CARB deputy executive director Alberto Ayala named Johnson as the person who revealed the existence of Volkswagen's illegal software. This revelation took place prior to a key meeting between CARB and Volkswagen on August 19, 2015. By revealing this information, Johnson was violating orders given by VW's higher ups. This meeting is mentioned in the federal indictment of Oliver Schmidt, a former VW executive who is facing 11 federal charges dealing with the scandal. Johnson is mentioned in the indictment as “Cooperating Witness 1.”
      The indictment also states the witness “has agreed to cooperate with the government’s investigation in exchange for an agreement that the government will not prosecute CW1 in the United States.”
