If it were me I would hold out and not comply without enough compensation to make me whole. Trade In value isn't enough. Fair Market Value is better (higher than trade in value) but then they want to ding you on days and miles. You are the victim of VW's mistake/wrong doing and may have some leverage since you own the car and (apparently) want to keep it (I would too). VW are flush with 2019 e-Golfs they are blowing out post Tesla Model 3 price reduction so I would see how best you could parlay your 2015 into a 2019 with that leverage you might have since VW obviously wants this car back and crushed to avoid consequences of their wrongdoing.

Best of luck. Curious how this all plays out.

I agree. It's VW's mistake and you shouldn't bear any economic damages. Even Fair Market Value is arguably too low, because that dollar amount isn't enough to get you a used E-Golf (same condition, mileage, age) since you would still have to pay sales tax.

Just tell VW you are not interested in their offer, and that you plan to keep the car. If something fails on it, get a good attorney and sue them for selling you a car unfit for use, as it was a prototype, not fit for use by general public, and that they didn't make you a fair offer for turning it in, that was even near market value.

Your other option is to trade it in on a newer 2019, any brand you want, to any car maker you so chose, and let them deal with the value VW will give them for it.

VW:
I completely understand wanting more details on the 01C5 Recall and how it affects your eGolf; I truly wish I had any other specifics I could provide you. The information from the recall letter is all we have available at this time, that possible modifications that may have been performed on the vehicle could lead it to be potentially unsafe. I’m sorry I don’t have access to any more particulars.

I will proceed though with getting our CR&R team involved in a repurchase process for your VW. You should hear from one of their specialists in 7-10 days, or no later than the end of the day April 9th.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions in the meantime, and have a great weekend.

Sincerely,

Sarah S.
Customer CARE Advocate

That's what I was holding out for, and to my surprise, VW is going to give me a new 2019 SEL premium.

"Volkswagen of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”), an organizational unit of Volkswagen Group of
America, Inc., would like to extend to you an offer to replace the above-mentioned vehicle with
a new 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf SEL Premium, Pure White exterior and Titan Black interior (VIN
WVWPR7AU6KW911805).
The above-stated offer is made in the interest of goodwill only and is an attempt at a fair
resolution of this matter. This offer is not an admission of liability or nonconformity by
Volkswagen under state law. The replacement offer will remain valid 7 days from the date of
this letter. In consideration of this agreement to replace the above-mentioned vehicle, you
agree to surrender the vehicle to us and to sign the necessary paperwork to provide a clear
certificate of title to Volkswagen Group of America, Inc."

There is a class action lawsuit against VW for selling pre-production vehicles, so I guess they want it off the road. Straight up trade, so no sales tax. It seems I really lucked out considering I paid $22,800 including delivery for the 2015 egolf before the federal rebate.

You would be wise to jump on that trade, straight away. Do NOT look the gift horse in the mouth, though.

Wow, congratulations! Jump on that before they change their mind. 7 days, clock is ticking, jump on this one. You scored!

Congrats! Thats absolutely what they owed you in this case. Selling pre-production prototypes is absolutely unacceptable for a vehicle on a public roadway!
