Volkswagen Dieselgate, Volkswagen Goodwill Package

Volkswagen today announced a “Customer Goodwill Package” available to current U.S. owners of TDI diesel vehicles affected by the emissions-rigging scandal. Presented here is the text announcing the package as found on Volkswagen’s website. Note that a fix for affected vehicles has not yet been announced. Affected are all 2.0-liter TDI vehicles sold in the U.S. and Canada since 2009. 


We’re Working to Make Things Right.

On September 18, 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board notified Volkswagen that certain 2.0L 4-cylinder TDI vehicles do not comply with applicable emissions regulations.

Over the past several weeks, we’ve apologized to our loyal customers about the 2.0L TDI emissions issue. As we work tirelessly to develop a remedy, we ask for your continued patience.

In the meantime, we’re providing affected 2.0L TDI® owners with a $500 Volkswagen Prepaid Visa® Loyalty Card, a $500 Volkswagen Dealership Card, and no-charge 24-hour Roadside Assistance for three years*. We sincerely hope you see this as a first step toward restoring your invaluable trust.

Here’s How Much Money Volkswagen Diesel Owners Are Getting
