So far, the majority of Volkswagen TDI owners who’ve joined the company’s settlement have chosen to sell their cars back at above-market rates.

According to Automotive News, greater numbers of the 210,000 owners and lessees want the buyback instead of a cash payment and a free fix. The numbers vary depending on age, equipment, and mileage, but it seems that owners are opting for the simplest way out. Volkswagen must pay the trade-in value for a clean car listed under the NADA guidelines, plus $2986.73 and one-fifth of the car’s determined trade-in value.

Considering that Volkswagen offered the choice of cash payments from $5100 to nearly $8000 and buybacks between $12,475 and $34,000, we’re not surprised by owners swaying toward extra cash. Of course, a buyback means they’ll need to buy a replacement car, which might not be worth the effort or the extra cost. Another quarter-million or so eligible Volkswagen drivers have not made up their minds yet.
