    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.

     

    And most will not be selling for those prices.....we have a local one here that is only a grand off MSRP.......

    :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.

    Back on topic, I know of several people who have bought these new 2015's.  My wife brought up finding a 2015 TDI Beetle manual for her to drive, i may look at one...still wildly unsure of what I want to replace the Jetta with.

    Ah okay. I thought you were looking for as close to a Jetta TDI replacement as possible.

      Volkswagen is working both ends of the SUV size spectrum lately.  Their Atlas model has become an excellent seller, moving 74,108 copies as of November 2019. That an increase of 40% over the prior year to date figures.  Though it's first model year was 2018, Volkswagen feels that it is nearly time for a refresh for 2021. The update will be mostly visual with new head and tail lights, new front and rear bumpers, and a revised grille. Volkswagen says it will also have updated and new driver-assistance features on top of the suits of technology the Atlas already sports.  The changes will bring the full-size Atlas more into visual alignment with the new Atlas Cross Sport  just hitting the market now.
      Also coming will be a new crossover slotted below the Tiguan that will compete more directly with the Jeep Compass, Nissan Rogue Sport, and others in that class. While details are scarce, we do know what it won't be, it won't be the European T-Roc currently on sale overseas.  The new model will be designed specifically for North America and built in Mexico.  It should launch in the U.S. sometime in the Summer of 2021. 
      For those of you lamenting the demise of the sedan, Volkswagen did manage to take a shot at the U.S. manufacturers by saying, "While some brands have walked away from car sales, we are focused on making smart decisions in this segment which is still a big part of the market."

      One of the safety issues surrounding electric vehicles is that they are nearly silent at low speeds with only limited tire noise emanating from them. This is a hazardous situation for pedestrians who may not hear an EV creeping up being them.  
      Volkswagen is working on a solution to the issue by hiring composer and music producer Leslie Mandoki to produce a sound for the upcoming ID series of cars to make when operating at low speeds.  One advantage of this is that brands, including Volkswagen, can craft their own voice for their cars to have. The Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System operates both inside and outside of the car and fades away when the car reaches cruising speeds where wind and road noise are sufficient. 
      “An electric vehicle’s sound defines its identity. The sound should be confident and likable. It may well sound futuristic and must also impress with its unique character”, Dr. Frank Welsch explains as the Chief Development Officer of Volkswagen Passenger Cars.

    • Whoa, think they can give them away?  Chevy's site is advertising $8428 off the MSRP for a 2019 Bolt Premiere!  $4640 off a Colorado ZR2... hmmm... which one has a higher percentage of discount v. MSRP?  And even at MSRP, GM loses many thousands of dollars per Bolt sold.  So, this is the Tesla profit model?  Is that how this works?  So sustainable.
