Audi A6 3.0 TDI Settlement Info

By  | 

If you an Audi owner or an enthusiast no doubt you know about dieselgate. If you happen to drive the one with 3.0 TDI engine you are part of the whole thing. Where are we at the process now? Hopefully you went to Audi’s Claim website and started the process. Heads up, it is a bit of a process to firstly get the amount of money you are owed and then verify your vehicle ownership with the dealership.


Federal Trade Comission requires VW to repair, buyback and compensate the owners of 3.0 TDI engines. Here is the link describing the decision, P

Proposed Settlement:

Generation 1 TDI 3.0 – fix the emissions and offer cash payout, buybacks or early lease termination

Generation 2 TDI 3.0 – fix the emissions, not buybacks offered right now. Their rationale that they can actually fix generation 2 engines to be compliant with the original EPA and CARB certifications. In any case if they can’t find a way to fix it, then buybacks and cash payouts will be offered to Generation 2 owners as well. Currently Generation 2 owners are schedule for repairs after Generation 1 cars have been dealt with.

It is important to note that VW is still proposing the fix that needs to be approved by the government first. One has to wonder if the know how to fix it, why they didn’t design the engine like that right away?

Key Date:

December 20, 2017 – this is by which date the fix needs to be approved by EPA/CARB or Buyback option starts be open for Generation 2 owners.
