VW Jetta 2009 ? 2015

When will the emissions modification be available?
Volkswagen is working on an emissions modification for each of the cars listed above. EPA and CARB will need to approve any emissions modification before this option becomes available.
What am I eligible to receive under the proposed Settlements if they are approved?
If you own or lease an eligible vehicle, you have choices. You can opt for (1) Volkswagen Group of America (?VWGoA?) buying back your car if you own it, (2) terminating your lease without an early-termination penalty if you are leasing the car, or (3) if an emissions modification is approved for your car by EPA and CARB, getting VWGoA to modify your car?s emissions system at no charge. Each of these options includes a cash payment from VWGoA. In addition, pursuant to agreements with the EPA and the CARB, and as referenced in VWGoA?s settlement agreement with consumers, VWGoA has committed to paying significant amounts to remediate excess nitrogen oxide emissions and to invest in chargers and other infrastructure for zero emission vehicles.
If I am a former owner or lessee, am I eligible to participate in the proposed Settlements?
If you owned an eligible vehicle on or before September 18, 2015, and sold it before June 28, 2016, you may be eligible to participate. Likewise, if you were leasing an eligible vehicle as of September 18, 2015, you may be eligible to participate.
