If a person were to purchase a TDI right now, would you still be eligible for a payout? What about buyback?

As I read the documents it seems to say “yes” you are eligible for a payout but the amount will be reduced but it’s not clear what the calculation is.

There are 2009 TDI wagons listed for under buyback amount. Could a person just buy a wagon, drive it to the local vw dealer and ask for a buyback and pocket the difference?

Because this is aimed at curbing emissions and not just making owners whole, it seems like you should be eligible for some sort of payment when the fix is made but it seems wrong that you’d be able to get a car purchased now bought back.
