VW is buying back my 2011 Golf TDI in two weeks' time. We purchased our S60D with an eye on the proceeds. What I don't understand here is the concept of "dragging out" anyone's acceptance of the VW buyback offer. The way I see it, each day you drive is one more chance of getting in an accident with the car, and getting an <$10k insurance payout compared to a ~$19k buyback. Or a costly repair which would be necessary to complete in order to be in compliance with VW's stipulation that the car must drive in under its own power. Dump that car as soon as possible!
