Now that VW has announced their offer of settlement to owners, what should the owners of VW diesels do?
- Accept the $5000+ and get the car “fixed” when the “fix” is ready?
- Accept the $5000+ and do nothing further
- Sell the car back to VW for the pre-fiasco value?
Owners who bought these cars in good faith that they had both economical and clean vehicles are very disappointed. The fix, if and when it arrives, will cause decreased performance and make the car harder to sell later.
A number of owners I’ve talked to plan to just keep driving and take the money, mainly because they like their cars and the fix option is unappealing.
Many panelists will no doubt have an opinion here.
