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.
