Well it has been a while since I have written. I won’t go into a rant on how VW screwed me by selling me a deceptive vehicle etc.
To be honest I really don’t have any ill feelings against VW.
We have driven our 2013 Golf TDI for 4 years , racking up 65.000 miles. The miles reflected some great trips, Vegas, Mammoth, Whitney Portal and Anza Borrego. Our Golf has performed flawlessly for our 4 years of ownership and we continue to drive it to this day.
Originally I planned, like 98% of TDI owners to sell my Golf back, but recently I have had a change of heart.
My plan is to hold onto our TDI as long as we can and hope there is an acceptable fix that does not affect economy and performance. This may prove difficult with our EA189 motor equipped model, but I am willing to wait and see what VW comes up with.
Rumor has it that after the fix VW will warranty the car for another 120,000 miles which equates to many more road trips 🙂
