I've got a 2010 TDI with 170k and it starting throwing faults telling me the high pressure fuel pump and fuel system is now going out. Quote to fix it is between 4-5k.
I was thinking the buyback would be perfect timing to drive this until my model 3 showed up, but the TDi figured differently.
So now I'm stuck in a position where I can't drive it, and I need to find a filler car until the model 3 comes out.
I drive nearly 100 miles a day commuting 4 to 5 days a week. Now what kind of junker can I find to drive for almost a year where it won't kill the pocketbook.
The timing on the TDi buyback seemed to good to be true, and I guess it turns out it was for me.
