Volkswagen (VW) is the German motor vehicle manufacturer best known for its iconic Beetle and was the largest carmaker in worldwide sales in both 2016 and 2017. However, Volkswagen sales in the United States have dropped due to serious vehicle issues.
While many people are loyal to the Volkswagen brand, our lemon law lawyer handles numerous claims involving VW vehicles. These vehicles can have chronic problems to the point where you need a full refund or vehicle replacement under California lemon laws.
If you unknowingly purchased the wrong Volkswagen, reach out to our law firm about a possible claim.
There are many issues that Volkswagen owners have experienced in recent years that can result in serious and costly repairs or safety concerns.
Volkswagen admitted to using software to cheat emissions testing on many of its diesel-powered cars for many years. This scandal resulted in fines from government agencies, and also vehicle buybacks, lease terminations, and other liability.
For many years, top-selling Volkswagen models, such as the Jetta and Passat, have had serious problems with powertrain reliability in both four-cylinder and five-cylinder engines. These chronic problems led the dependability score for Volkswagens to fall below the auto industry standard in recent years.
Most U.S. consumers view Volkswagen as a near-luxury product, and the price tags reflect this. VWs are pricier than comparable models from Ford, Toyota, or other mass-market brands. When you pay more for a vehicle, you likely have higher expectations regarding quality, so problems and constant repairs can be particularly difficult.
Volkswagen is releasing new generations of certain models, such as the Tiguan. While these newer models might entice buyers, there can always be unforeseen issues when manufacturers release new versions of their products. This opens the door for more chronic issues that can qualify Volkswagens as lemons.
If you purchase a Volkswagen lemon, you deserve full legal and financial relief for your vehicle-related woes. It can be difficult to obtain total compensation for a pricier vehicle, even if you have proof the vehicle was a lemon and you have been plagued by issues and repair attempts. Always have the right attorney handling your lemon law claim to ensure VW does not try to pay you less than you deserve to refund or replace your vehicle.
