Just curious to how many of these vehicles have been bought back as lemons? Mine (finally) counts as one, who else? And if you had one...did you go back to VW?
I didn't have to go the lemon law route. I did email VW of America about the numerous problems I had with my Beetle 2.5 Sound and Nav. I spoke with a customer care representative and was offered 2 months payments or $1500 towards a new or used VW. I then spoke to the salesman who sold me the car. He said "I told you before "IF YOU BUY A CAR FROM US, WE WANT YOU TO BE ABSOLUTELY HAPPY. LET ME SEE WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU."
He called VoA and got them to raise it to $2500, 0% for 60 months instead of the .9% that was being offered at the time. I told him I wanted a white Passat SE with a beige interior.
That day, I got off work and went by the dealership. They had the car waiting in the front for me. Test drove the car, looked at the numbers, and went home with the Passat 30 minutes later. I'm paying a lot less for the Passat than I was for the Beetle, and have been motoring problem free ever since.
I didn't have to bitch or complain like I thought I would. The dealer made what I thought would be a very difficult situation, a painless one.
Wish my dealer were that generous but something has drastically changed with them recently and not for the good so now it's time to get VW to stand behind their product and make me happy. Hopefully they come through for me and I can continue to be their number one goodwill ambassador.
I need to figure out the lemon laws for TX. I know mine has been in service more than 3 times for the window issue. It has been raining here lately and noticed yesterday morning the entire door had water stains running down that weren't there the day before. Also the window was cracked down a bit like when you open the door, but it apparently didn't go up even after it locked. I am SO tired of this car. I've been looking at non-VWs as my next car because this car alone has completely destroyed my image of VW. (Not just the windows, but the fuel sensor issues, fuel pump issue, rattles, wind noise, everything)
