• Report: Newly Repaired 2015 VW TDI Models Are On Sale, But VW is Not Advertising the Discounts


    2014 volkswagen jetta tdi vw review

    A recent report from CarsDirect provides insight into unadvertised discounts of up to $8,500 for 2015 VW TDI models that were involved in the emissions cheating scandal. Volkswagen got permission in January 2017 to repair affected vehicles with an Engine Control Module (ECM) re-flash. According to the report, the repaired vehicles are now going on sale with the following financing and leasing discounts. Volkswagen is not advertising TDI models or 2015 TDI discounts on its consumer website. According to the report, VW is relying on the dealership to promote and set the discounts accordingly.

    Consumers can qualify for 0% APR for up to 72 months with an additional $5,000 discount. Customers looking to lease a Passat TDI are eligible for a $8,500 discount. Currently, there are no cash purchase discounts. The report says the 2015 TDI sales offer is running April 14th – May 31st, 2017.

    If you are looking to lease or finance a “new” 2015 VW TDI vehicle, it would be wise to do some research and call several dealerships in advance. Discounts and pricing may vary from one dealer to the next depending on many factors: inventory, popularity of TDI models, and more.

    The affected models include: VW Jetta, SportWagen, Golf, Passat, Beetle Coupe, and Beetle Convertible.

    1. Hurry, while supplies last! Let’s all team up to pay off this company’s lawsuit for willful, unethical business practices. Editors, please keep praising their vehicles so people forget their immorality towards the consumer and the environment. No thanks VW, go screw over someone else with these 3 year old vehicles.

      1. Yes those dirty smelly TDI’s are no good. Everyone should go buy a big American diesel truck to drive around town instead. Come on, this was a no win for VW. 25% of its sales were diesel cars and the EPA made it impossible to certify them. I don’t agree with the cheating but they were between a rock and a hard place. How do those big diesel trucks that almost nobody uses as a work truck get certified when VW couldn’t get the cars certified. I will probably buy the ‘new’ TDI. Its a great car (and no, I do not work for VW).

        1. Sorry No. No pity for VW. If they can ‘fix’ them they could have sold them co.pliant in the first place. Can meeting compliance standards ‘neuter’ a popular car? Sure. EPA compliance is driving a glut of vehicles with dull performance on to the market. So what? Brilliant people will eventually find a solution to meet regulations with performance, soul, and QRD. The fact that any manufacturer would cheat and lie to capture market share and profit while others were meeting that standard. That they would get ahead while others were working on a creative solution in good faith is reprehensible. Bottom line clean air, land and water are more important than profits. If you think that the regulations are incongruent, fine, unite and work to change them. In the mean time, just be honest.

    2. Agreed about the trucks…I don’t like seeing them either. So basically, if the government makes it hard to come into compliance that is justification to become unethical and rip off the consumer….just trying to understand your counterpoint. How much money did they make last year, the year before….methinks greed is the motivator here.

    3. The HUGE difference between VW and others is that the others comply with EPA regulations and VW’s do not….. VW went out of their way to mislead and defraud the public and EPA.

    4. Just read that VW was sentenced to Conspiracy and Fraud with a fine of $4.2 Billion. “Conspiracy and Fraud” what a good slogan for VW. Those editors that praise and people who drive them are just enabling the behavior. Would you hire a contractor, go to a doctor or have someone do your taxes with the same record?

    5. The only ‘difference’ between VW and others is the fact they got caught. Yeah, it’s crappy to cheat emissions testing, big deal. Are we also boycotting Fiat Chrysler (Jeep, Ram, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, etc)? Are we boycotting every manufacturer who knowingly sold us defective Takata air bags (Toyota, Honda, BMW, Nissan, FORD, etc)?

      Point being, its business. Not just business, but billion-dollar, business. It’s naive to think such acts of ‘deception’ aren’t regular occurrences.

      I’m not defending VW, just playing devil’s advocate – especially when you take a step back off your high horse and realize VW’s ‘scandal’ really only impacted those who enforce rules and regulations (EPA), and didn’t put our lives in danger every time we got in the drivers (or passengers) seat like those other brands did. Just sayin…
