If you’ve leased or purchased a new or used Volkswagen that is under warranty and you’ve had to take it back for repairs more than twice, your Volkswagen may be a lemon. Under California’s lemon law, Volkswagen may be required to repurchase your vehicle (minus a mileage offset) or replace it with a new vehicle. Additionally, you are entitled to compensation for any incidental and consequential cost, such as registration costs, costs for a rental vehicle or towing costs that you incurred.

Volkswagen lemon complaints reported include BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:
This list is not inclusive of all Volkswagen defects. If you are having an issue with your Volkswagen you may have a Volkswagen lemon and may be entitled to damages. Call our Los Angeles Lemon Law attorneys to see if your car qualifies as a lemon.
It is important to note that NOT all three criteria must be met for a vehicle to be deemed a lemon. For instance, if your vehicle radio has been replaced repeatedly, such a defect may not impact the safety of the vehicle but it certainly would impact its use or value which likely renders the vehicle a lemon.
Yes, your used Volkswagen can also be deemed a lemon if the defect first occurred while under the manufacturer’s warranty and the dealership was provided with a reasonable opportunity to fix the defect and you are within the applicable statute of limitations to bring the claim.
A reasonable opportunity to repair your vehicle may be as few as two repair opportunities if the defect you are complaining about can potentially result in serious bodily injury or death.
On the other hand, a defective radio may require more than three or four repair attempts. Still a single repair for engine failure may take 60 days and occur within the first couple of months of ownership, raising a presumption that the vehicle is a lemon.
