Volkwagen is kind of rolling around in its own spew after a big night out drinking, where it thinks it's okay but needs to lay down and sleep for maybe a week straight. Well, the latest news feels exactly like that.

The troubled automaker is in the middle of the biggest car-related scandal in history, with its emission cheating news making headlines in recent months. Now the company is offering $1,000 in gift cards and other financial incentives to its customers, with $500 in dealership credit to top it off. The 482,000 diesel-powered VW cards also take home a $500 Visa gift card that can be used anywhere, and free roadside assistance for three years.

Audi customers receive help too, where a "goodwill package" is being prepared. Owners will have to visit a specific website to request the items, where you'll need to enter your vehicle's VIN number, and mileage as well as your name and address. Volkswagen is also offering $2,000 trade-in credit and with the announcement from today, owners of affected vehicles will benefit to the tune of around $3,000.
