I had a 2011 VW Jetta TDI. Because of the diesel scandal, VW bought the car back at fair market value. VW Canada also paid a bonus to make full amends for their TDI lies. All in all, I got $16,700. I put it all into the purchase of a 2017 VW Jetta Wolfsburg Edition TSI.
I have a spreadsheet tracking all costs. The numbers above are from that spreadsheet.
