VW TDI Recall Program
Do you have a Volkswagen model that was impacted in the recent TDI recall? Here at Fox Valley Volkswagen Schaumburg, we pride ourselves on our dedication to our customers, which is why we have made ourselves fully available to answer your questions and concerns about the recent charges brought against Volkswagen concerning their diesel engines.
If you own a Volkswagen model from the list below that is equipped with the 2.0L diesel engine, you may be eligible for the Volkswagen Emissions Settlement Program.
- VW Beetle (2013-2015)
- VW Beetle Convertible (2013-2015)
- VW Golf (2010-2015)
- VW Golf SportWagen (2015)
- VW Jetta (2009-2015)
- VW Jetta SportWagen (2009-2014)
- VW Passat (2012-2015)
Should the settlement be approved, Schaumburg area VW TDI owners are entitled to either:
- Complimentary emissions modifications
- Termination of their lease without consequence
- Buy-back of the affected vehicle by the manufacturer
Owners and lessees will be paid in cash. Until the settlement is approved, Schaumburg area drivers should know that it is completely safe and legal to continue to drive their vehicle.
Additional questions can be addressed to the team at Fox Valley VW of Schaumburg, or drivers may choose to search the FAQ created by Volkswagen concerning the emission settlement.
Volkswagen’s Commitment to the Environment
In addition to compensating owners, Volkswagen will give $4.7 billion to projects designed to offset other harmful consequences of the faulty TDI engines. $2.7 billion has been pledged to reduce the effects of man-made emissions on the environment, while the remaining $2 billion will be put toward research of future zero-emissions vehicles.
We were disappointed to learn of the faulty TDI engines used in several recent Volkswagen models, but we also point to Volkswagen’s efforts elsewhere to help protect the environment.
- By 2018, Volkswagen will have reduced the environment impact of their production process by 25% of that in 2010
- All new VW models are 95% re-usable and 85% recyclable
- VW sponsors several landscape and wildlife conservation programs
