    the brochure for mk6 r says 8.7L/100km.

    mine used 60L+ for 150km... (at Morgan Park) something is definitely not right!!

    or 2.5 tanks for 750km trip to Morgan Park (bit better).

    WTF. The users have had full use of the vehicle since purchase. What makes them think that they're entitled to a full refund? The charge back from VW for rental of the vehicle whilst in their possession would be more than the cost of the vehicle in most cases. What damage has been caused to the owner of the vehicle? Damn ambulance chasers!

    so how many people out there who purchased a car whether it'd be a VW or Toyota bought it because of the emissions it emits?
    emission laws in Europe and California are stricter than what we have here. so our cars with "cheat devices" still may pass our emission regulations.
    question is, will this stop you from buying another VW? probably won't stop me.

    ^ 100%

    Unfortunately the main driver is people being caught up in said mindset. People on mass then think "VW is crap", and that will be a main point for the class action based around supposed resale value that will be affected by a misinformed frenzy.

    No one actually got positioned into buying a VW because another manufacturer couldn't pass emissions tests in Australia which don't exist. So that whole argument that people bought to save the dolphins is really just an unproven statement.

    If however all this does affect resale, then people are fair and reasonable in wanting some compensation

    This is correct, my car is effected and the only compensation I would want if any goes through would be to make up what might hit me in decreased re sale, even though there nothing wrong with the car.

    Everyone turns in to a lawyer when they skim read the repair, replace, refund policy and think they are entitled to everything for free.
    But they should read it properly...
