Volkswagen will offer 2 gift cards as part of its Goodwill Package to diesel car owners in the United States. But these two $500 gift cards will be offered to only those U.S. owners of cars that have software that cheats emissions regulations.

Volkswagen just announced the release of the Goodwill Package. The Goodwill Package will offer Volkswagen customers in the form of 2 gift cards. The gift cards will be worth $1000 and given to only VW diesel car owners.

People with the now-infamous Volkswagen diesel cars are viable for the gift cards. One of the cards is a $500 gift card usable anywhere. While the other card is also worth $500 and is viable at the VW dealerships.

Along with the cards owners affected by diesel emissions recall are being offered other incentives. The affected customers will be given and extended 3 year 24 hours roadside-assistance deal. The assistance deal is also a part of the Goodwill Package. The tagline of the package is ‘We're Working to Make Things Right’.

The question still remains. Will $1000 be bough to win back the trust of the American populace? Volkswagen was found to be cheating diesel emissions in their cars. The emissions were 40 times greater than the legal limit. Is offering gift cards the right move to re-establish the trust of their consumers?

To avail from the package diesel owners need to sign up for the Goodwill Package online. After receiving the cards from VW they need to be activated by a VW dealer. Volkswagen also announced only vehicle owners with the 2.0-liter TDI vehicle are eligible.

Owners of the 3.0-liter V6 TDI are not eligible for the Goodwill Program. The omission is due to the ongoing status of the investigation. Registration for the Goodwill Package is open until the 30th of April 2016. Get more information about $1000 VW 2.0L TDI Customer Goodwill Package.
