Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Eric asks: Is it possible to buy one of the “fixed” VWs and then software-really-fix it back to get the 50 mpg?
My reply: It ought to be… My understanding is that the majority of the “fix” is a software/programming change. What can be programmed one way should be un-programmable… assuming that VW did not somehow lock down the car’s ECU, which is a distinct possibility.
I am going to try to suss out some more facts… stay tuned!
