The purgatory of the Dieselgate: Where Volkswagen stores the TDI repurchased


air force Base Norton, California.

relatively recently that Volkswagen USA began the buy-back program vehicles affected by the Dieselgate in that market, however, are thousands of units which have already been collected, although there are still tens of thousands waiting for the ratification of the agreement between VAG and the EPA.

These first vehicles that have already been collected have been stored for the brand, in various parts of the country, which have already appeared the first images.

despite the fact that still has not been collected but a part of all the specimens that are subject to repurchase agreements, the images of these storage spaces are overwhelming. Thousands of individuals lined up, one after the other in huge open spaces and to the outdoors.


From any perspective you only see the same thing, thousands of units, one after the other.

The publication Jalopnik has managed to get close to one of these locations and was able to get images of two other of these sites, that we cannot but call purgatory, since in theory these vehicles will be later refurbished and will return to the market, although for the moment only have been crammed into these stores, makeshift, waiting.

The images are heart-breaking. are Literally thousands of models one after the other, until where it reaches the eye, the vast majority of them corresponding to the Volkswagen Golf and Jetta, although they also appear in the photos some Audi A3 and Volkswagen Passat, and Beetle cabrio.

of These locations are in the stadium abandoned Detroit
Lions, the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan, air force base Norton, in
California and in the port of Baltimore. In all cases, the picture
is identical, the same vehicles up to where it reaches the view.

Interestingly practically all of them in apparent perfect state,
what makes us think that not too many people had the idea of
tear apart your TDI prior to delivery.
