Anyone done the fix for emissions (part 1 software)? Fuel MPG's go up or down?
What fix are you talking about?
I would say neither one. my 2006 BRM is probably the last TDI I will ever buy.
Stayed the same
Just bought one yesterday from the dealer brand new, $5k off MSRP and 72 months free financing. Deal is good until the end of May. Drove it briefly and didn't notice much of a change compared to my 2013 sportwagen TDI. I don't know what the MPG will be like or how it behaves on the highway because I only drove it around city streets. But then again....who cares? Malone and Kerma can fix the problem very easily. Here's something to consider. MK6 TDI are inexpensive, no Urea injection which gives you independent rear suspension. Infotainment and options on the MK7 are better, especially the stereo. Everything else.....is very similar unless you want to go for the driver assist package offered on the MK7. Personally I don't care for all the safety garbage, less things to break down and I like to drive the car not the car drive me. But....that 's just my opinion.
I don't think that performance has changed, therefore the MPG should be the same. The Urea consumption will surely go up but the fluid is so cheap. The big question is what the numbers will look like when the final hardware recall gets performed next year. However, EPA as evil as it is....they won't approve anything so restrictive that messes up reliability. You should be in a good shape...
