Most Common Problems with Volkswagen Lemons

The most common problem with VW cars is a persistent Check Engine Light. This light can appear for no reason and leave both you and your mechanic scratching your heads. Still, this light can also relate to serious engine issues that require an immediate repair. This Check Engine Light is mostly found on Jettas but may appear on other models as well. There are also issues with oil sludge and wiring shorts but in Jettas and Passats. The Jetta also has reported issues with Airbag Malfunction. The Passat is reported to have coil failure.

California Lemon Law

The law is clear as to what is defined as a lemon. Any new vehicle, whether purchased or leased, comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. This factory warranty covers damage and defects of all types, under a specific time or mile allotment set from the day you bought the car. If the vehicle is still under its factory warranty, then it is also covered under the California Lemon Law. The following three stipulations must also be met. You have a lemon if under the factory warranty one or more of these apply to you:

  1. Your vehicle needed four or more repairs for the same defect.
  2. Your vehicle needed two or more repairs for a safety issue that could have resulted in death or a major bodily injury.
  3. You were unable to drive your vehicle for a period of 30 total days.
