July 27, 2017:  EPA Approves VW's Fixes for First-Gen 2.0-liter TDIs

After years of searching, VW has software and hardware upgrades that will make 326,000 TDI vehicles emissions compliant.  Model years covered:  2009-14; vehicles include the Golf, Jetta and Beetle.  Fuel economy will take a two-mpg hit.  VW claims repaired vehicles will otherwise perform well.  

Now those who want to keep their 2.0-liter TDI have the option of accepting the free fix and taking VW's monetary compensation:  $5,100 to $9,800.

About the Volkswagen Club of America

The VWCA (Volkswagen Club of America) is a not-for-profit hobby club for owners and enthusiasts of Volkswagen and Audi automobiles. Founded in 1955, the Club has followed the evolution of Volkswagen from the early air-cooled Beetle to the latest models to roll off the assembly line. We are not owned by, affiliated with or sponsored by Volkswagen AG or Volkswagen of America, the Importer. The Club is operated and managed solely by volunteer members who contribute their time and energy in pursuit of our motto, "to help Volkswagen and Audi owners enjoy their cars to the fullest." Read about the club's history.
