Sounds like FCA is now under scrutiny for eight pieces of emission control devices/software that produced increased NOx emissions under normal driving conditions. Models in question are 2014-16 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Ram 1500 trucks.

So how far does the rabbit hole go?

They are under scrutiny for bad paperwork. The EPA is actually fine with all the emission controls themselves, they just were not disclosed properly.

EPA was not fine with VW's emission controls which specifically worked to cheat the tests and were not mechanical protection software used by FCA and every other modern diesel engine in North America. There is major difference between the two.

The EPA approved Part 1 of the Gen 3 fix this month so probably won't be long until you can sell the remaining inventory

I have one of these 2015 2L TDIs... Buyback values looks awfully tempting.

I've barely driven my TDI for the past couple months now and don't need to service it for another 7000kms. I have $300 left on my CC that I need to use by month end. Should I just use it to buy a bunch of oil and filters?

Wiper blades, air filters, any other consumables really would make sense. Things you know you will use.

Those TDi V 10s are unicorns! I'd love to own one, but would hate to have it break down on me, almost all major services are an engine out deal.
I'm decently happy with my V8 gasser

Sounds like all 3L TDI will be unicorns soon. VW announced buy back program for 2009-2012 3.0 TDI models. 2012+ will be neutered I assume.

I ended up buying 22L of oil and 2 jugs of blu

I went this route as I think I will be selling the car back to VW. Hoping to get at least $25k+ for a 2015 TDI Highline w/ 31k Kms

Think I'm way off?

Super silly in my eyes, those TDIs were known for their 26mpg+ efficiency..
