    Are they buying the cars back? Most cant pass emissions test so the cash doesn't help you.

    I have a 2013 Passat TDI SEL with 65k miles and has been in two accidents. Not a bad deal.

    I think they will take the car back AND give you cash.

    I assume they will buy back your car at MARKET PRICE, which is depressed due to the scandal, and the cash payment is compensation for that diminished value. Depending on how that's valued, you might see a windfall, but probably not much.

    Buyback
    If a Class Member who owns a car chooses a Buyback, the price Volkswagen will pay for that car is the September 2015 National Automobile Dealers Association (“NADA”) Clean Trade In value of the car adjusted for options and mileage (“Vehicle Value”). This figure is the value of the car in September 2015, before the emissions accusations became public. Owners receive their Vehicle Value, plus an additional cash payment (“Owner Restitution”). The Owner Restitution payment is calculated at 20% of the Vehicle Value plus $2,986.73. The minimum Owner Restitution payment for any Class Member—to be paid on top of the Vehicle Value—will be $5,100. Some Class Members may receive as much as approximately $10,000 in Owner Restitution.

    Because a car may have more than one owner during the relevant period, for those cars that changed hands after September 18, 2015 and during the claims period, the settlement equitably divides the Owner Restitution payment approximately 50/50 between the owner as of September 18, 2015 who later sold the car (“Eligible Seller”) and the current owner (“Eligible Owner”). To qualify for an Eligible Seller restitution payment, you must identify yourself with 45 days of the entry of the Preliminary Approval Order. If preliminary approval is granted by the Court on July 26, 2016 (the date of the preliminary approval hearing), you will have until September 16, 2016 to identify yourself. Note that if you sell your car after June 28, 2016, you will not be an Eligible Seller (or an Eligible Owner).

    The payment table is right in the court link. Nice work by the class action attorneys.

    I wonder how much they saved bypassing the emissions standards?
    Besides saving on parts and labor I bet they could advertise better mileage.
    But the smog compliant equipment alone must be alot per car.
