Here’s How Much You Can Expect for Your TDI Buyback


Earlier today Volkswagen, the FTC, the EPA, and other government agencies announced that they’d agreed on a settlement, the sum total of which could cost VW nearly $15 billion. This morning it was indicated that Volkswagen would be paying between $12,000 (accounting for VWs) and $44,000 to TDI owners based on a number of factors. Now we know what the buyback values are likely to be car-by-car.

The values are published in the full case filings published today at ftc.gov. The values are based on what the cars were worth before September 2015, when the scandal broke. The values quoted below could change, however, if your car has higher or lower than standard mileage when you sell your car back.

If you choose to sell your car, you will get the value of your car, as laid out below, plus a cash payment—also listed beside your vehicle in column 2 of the chart, labeled “Modification.” If, however, a fix is possible and you opt for it, you will get that fix free of charge as well as the cash payment of between $5,100 (accounting for VWs) and $10,000 listed beside your car in column 2, labeled “Modification.

Lessees, meanwhile, will also be entitled to a cash payment, as listed in the chart below, in the second chart. You will also have the option of terminating your lease, without penalty, or hanging onto your car and waiting for a fix if and when it becomes available.

The charts below are simplified versions compiled by the NADA. For a full list of buyback values, by vehicle and trim level, visit ftc.gov.
