As your dealer, we are here to help you. If you unaware of your options, we can guide you through the process. We have the knowledge and facilities on site to scan/submit all required documents if you need.



We're here to help


If you are an affected TDI owner and would like to discuss your options with us or if you have any questions at all in regards to the proposed settlement, we're here to help.


Feel free to contact our TDI Settlement Specialist at (519) 372-2020 or using our contact page on this site (we'll reply within business hours).


If you are considering the option of trading-in your vehicle, please note that we are experiencing a high demand on certain models and recommend that you get in touch with us immediately to secure your next vehicle of choice.






If you owned your vehicle on September 18, 2015 and continue to be the owner, the proposed settlement agreements include a cash payment, plus one of the following options:


1) Buy Back + Trade In.

Owners eligible for the buy-back option also have the option of trading-in their vehicle to Owen Sound Volkswagen and putting the value towards a new or used Volkswagen vehicle from our inventory. The Trade in Option allows you to recapture the book value of attributed HST to the next purchase of a Volkswagen and to capitalize on our customer loyalty programs.

2) Buy back of their vehicle
3) Vehicle modification with extended warranty (Currently Generation 2 models only)
4) Early lease termination
5) Even if you no longer no longer own or lease your vehicle, you may be eligible for cash.


As your Volkswagen dealer, we thank you for your patience. We have been reviewing our inventory needs to make sure that we can offer you the best automotive choices in the market. If you plan to be in the market for a new vehicle, please feel free to contact us in the coming months so that we can ensure that we can secure your vehicle of choice ahead of time.

> When you are considering your financial options at Step 8, if you are confused by the difference between the Buy Back and Trade In Option refer to the Net VW payment to Eligible Owner line or contact our sales department for clarification.
