To my benefit I was one of the many whom qualified for this program. Notified by VW Corporate in the fall of 2016 that my 2014 VW Passat TDI SEL Premium qualified. Sold the Passat to VW Corporate in April 2017. Monies from the sale contributed to a large portion of the cost of a New 2017 Audi Q5 Premium that I purchased. Likely without this generous cash settlement the Q5 would have never happened.
