Hey Guys - not even a year ago, I purchased a Routan from Linden VW, in Linden, NJ and this is my timeline:
6/20/2011 - Purchased "CERTIFIED" Routan
7/13/2011 - Returned to dealer: replaced front brake pads and rotors /
10/5/2011 - replaced rotors and pads for backbrakes / driver window problems / door drains were clogged / replaced headlight due to condensation
As you can see here, I feel these people never actually inspected and fixed this vehicle before they sold it. In December I dropped it off for the 36,000 miles check. I put 4,000 miles and yesterday as it was being driven suddenly the oil light starts flashing very crazy, the engine starts knocking. The Van was taken to a nearby VW and they told me THERE WAS NO OIL AT ALL in the engine .. Is this possible????? Shouldn't there be at least some oil??? I had the vehicle towed to where I purchased it and they are saying I drove the vehicle with no oil and is my liability. Even though it is clear I've been having problems with the van ever since I purchased it.
I honestly think they sold me a lemon to begin with, but I was too nice to catch it. Do I stand a chance on suing these people? They convinced VWOA that it was my fault and not theris, therefore, the liability lies on me for the repairs.
This is my third VW and I'm so dissappointed at this dealer, not VW but this dealer. Please help guys.
