VW Emissions Fix Survey: Owners who opted not to have the Emission fix

Our last VW Emissions survey was very successful with over 2,000 responses and lots of eye opening statistics – Read more here.

What it failed to do was gather the thoughts from those who opted not to let VW ruin their car have the fix applied. That’s all about to change with our newest survey.

We’ve put together this latest survey to help piece together the reasons why people opted not to gave the fix and if VW were misleading with the campaign to roll the fix out to as many cars as possible. Please do take the time to fill out the survey below and help us further build the case against VW and it’s disgraceful conduct throughout this emissions “recall”. Feel free to share this page on social media to help us collate as many responses as possible.

We’ve embedded the Google survey below. Please use the scroll bars to the side of the form to fully complete it.

*Please note that no identifiable data is collected in the survey below. All responses are made completely anonymously and the data collected will only be used by Hypermiler.co.uk. If you have any questions regarding how we use our data please do get in touch via our contact page.

    I feel that VW disrespects their customers and I’m really frustrated by their behaviour.

  2. Roger Heywood says:

    I have not had the fix for my 2011 Tiguan, my brother in law has for his 2012 Tiguan and experienced rough running, he was told that it was his injectors!!!!, after numerous trips to the main agent it now seems OK.

  3. Derek Smith says:

    Fortunately I heard about the problems before getting my car ‘fixed’ – I now get it serviced by an independent garage to ensure the ‘fix’ is not carried out without my permission.
    This scandal just seems to go from bad to worse and the sooner VAG are held to account, the better!

  4. Ian smith says:

    Can’t trust vw dealer now. Using independent for servicing.

  5. Peter S says:

    Agree 100%! Do not intend to go near a VAG dealer ever again!

  6. Craig McClure says:

    I hope VWAG are held accountable for the disrespect towards their customers and get what’s coming to them. Some sort of compensation or buy back would take the smile off their faces. Liars & Cheats and they shouldn’t be in business if this is how they treat their customers.

  8. Darren Moat says:

    After reading about all the problems other drivers were having after they had the fix, I was not willing to take a chance on the fix destroying my car , I have my car serviced at a private garage so I know the fix will not be done without my knowledge.

  9. Luke Chambers says:

    I was one of the lucky ones who didn’t have the fix done after hearing all the issues others were having post fix. Thought I still love the car and the brand. I wouldn’t be put off owning another VW.

  10. Chris says:

    VW is essentially passing on the repercussions of their own actions to their customers. They couldn’t get away with it in the US but for some reason they are allowed to here. If they do this now they will quite happily do it again and they have set a precedent for other manufacturers with Lemons or cheats in the future – i.e. they can get away with it.

  11. Gareth jennings says:

    I am both saddened and sickened by the way the vag group are currently disregarding there customers, most of whom had developed a great respect for the brand over a very long period of time, a aspirational brand. Now I see this brand totally untoucheable for not only me but my entire family . I’m often asked for recommendations from friends and family, when the time comes for a change of car. Two years ago any vag group car would always be my first recommendation, now I wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy, and I truly feel saddened by that .
    They seem to want to run the group as arrogance from the top .
    I pity the men and women who have to work further down the line

  12. Ronald Pass says:

    Didnt have fix applied due to adverse comments on Skoda forum

  13. Ged.webster says:

    Looks like we,ll be bullied into getting the fix done or fail the mot by the look it I take my car to my local garage for services and mot I get emissions test with low figures and a honest and genuine garage .
