Through means which it would be indelicate to divulge, I have come to learn that Volkswagen of America has a parking lot in my area in which are stored approximately 3,500 beautiful, late-model used cars, all of which are "in limbo" due to the infamous airbag recall. They are mainly perfect, and include very desirable as well as not-so-desirable models. They are paying a contractor to start the cars and run them periodically, and ensure that the tire pressures are maintained. This has been going on for months on end. VW is paying weekly, on a per-car basis for this service. The cost must be stupendous. What will this mean for the used car market for VW's when and if this finally resolved? Will the airbag manufacturer possibly be able to make VW whole? I can't imagine. This is one lot in a tiny corner of one state. Presumably it is duplicated at what...hundreds?...of other lots around the country, and possibly around the globe. It is an interesting and unbelievable thing, though true.
