A Detailed Look at the Volkswagen Goodwill Package for Diesel Owners

by SpeedLux

Back in November, Volkswagen stated it would certainly supply “Goodwill” package deals to motorists impacted by its diesel emissions detraction. Here’s a peek of exactly what it looks like if you were interested.

The package consists of a $500 prepaid Visa card that can be made use of anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted, a $500 card for usage at Volkswagen of America dealerships, and 24-hour roadside support for 3 years. These benefits go to those that had or leased an impacted diesel auto as of November 8, 2015. Vehicle drivers should sign up by April 30 to participate in the Goodwill program, and both cards end 1 year after the date of issuance. The files after that provide some regular step-by-step info, consisting of that there’s a $5 charge for replacing a lost card.

Volkswagen additionally takes time to respond to common concerns customers might have about suing the automaker. “Impacted customers qualified for the Goodwill Package are not required to waive their rights or launch their claims against Volkswagen Team of America in order to get the Package,” the fine print states. In short, yes, you could still sue Volkswagen. In another part of the package, specifically at the end of the Cardholder Agreement, vehicle drivers are asked to waive their right to test by court. But as it has been previously reported, that waiver is just meant to put on disputes pertaining to the settlement program, not the bigger diesel emissions issue. As well as the Cardholder Agreement, consisting of that condition, is entirely in between the client as well as Metabank, Volkswagen claims.

Remember that after Volkswagen announced a Goodwill package for 2.0-liter diesel automobiles, it said it would likewise offer a Goodwill plan for drivers of automobiles with 3.0-liter V-6 TDI engines. The offer mirrors that supplied to the first round of clients.
