    Finger Audi TDI 'Fix' for NA TDi issues

    Hmm.. so just before Christmas I guess the Canadian side finally settled so looks like there is a cash payment to people (not sure how much yet) and a fix for Gen2 vehicles (my q7) which includes what I found online a ECU flash, glow plug, and maybe a whole new exhaust setup!

    a few folks who have the fix said their vehicles are working the same but a few had issues.

    anyone else have info?

    No idea on the Audi fix, but if it's similar to my Golf then the first part is a software fix, and the second is the physical modifications, which take place in Spring 2018.

    The only way I would do the fix would be a very long and strong warrantee

    You don't get the cash payout until the car is fixed.

    Then you need to remove the hard parts that they just installed as those will affect economy and reliability.

    yes on the cash payout.. the value isn't there yet so I'll wait and see but the fix is going to probably be mandatory in southern Ontario as we have to do emissions tests although thats a joke anyways.

    I'll probably do the fix in the summer as long as no bugs and performance stays the same then perhaps APR update it afterwards.

    I have the software fix only right now and I can say the only difference I've noticed is a noticeable increase in AdBlue consumption.

    yea mine is the 3.0 motor .. the fix I've seen as stated above is quite a lot of things to replace and they say you get free ad blue top ups for like 4 years

    I have all my services for free up to like 160k right now too..

    The warranty on the exhaust system is increased for an extra 60k km or 5 years from date of installation.
    Not bad considering these DPF systems are about $4-5k for repair.

    I know you can get a cash pay out and leave it as is for me anyway. With my golf tdi, I had 3 options, Buy back, Fix and cash payment, or leave as is and small cash payment. I took the buy back obviously.

    There is no option to "keep as is" and get a payment that I can find, here are the options straight from VW's settlement website:

    If you purchased your vehicle on or before September 18, 2015 and are the current owner, you may be eligible to choose:

    A - Buyback OR Trade-In of your vehicle AND Cash Payment,
    B - Approved Emissions Modification. Keep your vehicle AND receive an extended emissions warranty AND Cash Payment. This option is only available if a modification is approved by regulators.

    If you purchased your vehicle after September 18, 2015 and are the current owner, you may be eligible to choose:
    A - Approved Emissions Modification. Keep your vehicle AND receive an extended emissions warranty AND Cash Payment.

    I assume you could not do the emissions modification at all but they also won't give you any payment then.
