This German automaker is among the top-selling luxury automobile brands in the world. Their slogan, translated into English as “advancement through technology,” is indicative of the brand’s penchant for creating progressive, cutting-edge vehicles that help put Audi at the forefront of the auto industry. With over 200,000 Audis sold in the U.S. last year, and that number expected to increase, there’s a chance that some of those Audis sold could be lemons. If you think you have a lemon, you may be eligible for an Audi Lemon buyback or other compensation.
Federal and state lemon laws have set forth a strict set of criteria for determining if a car is a lemon or not, and California’s differ from what you might find in some other states. We’re experts in Audi lemon law and have gotten California Audi Lemon Law buybacks for several clients’ lemon cars, including Audi A3, Audi A4, Audi A5, and Audi A6, as well as Audi Q5, Audi TT, and more. If your car is still under warranty and experiencing substantial defects, you may be eligible for compensation under the Audi lemon law. Recently, there has been an Audi diesel recall and an Audi A3 recall — reach out to us if you think you may be affected by an Audi recall, the Audi emissions scandal, or the Audi diesel scandal.
Although these common defects may qualify your Audi as a lemon, eligible defects are not limited to this list.
It is clear by the over 1,900 model-year 2017-2018 Audi R8’s that have already been recalled that the Audi R8 is a lemon. There are reoccurring issues with the gearbox ventilation hose that are causing transmission fluid leaks that greatly increase the chances of a fire. Fortunately, we have a team of Audi R8 lemon law experts ready to assist you in the recall and repair process.
An Audi A4 is often revered as a car of luxury. This isn’t the case, however, for those who purchased a 2018 Audi A4 lemon. Numerous problems with this car have arisen including defective airbags, poor structure, and malfunctioning powertrain and spotty breaks. These are some of the most important features of a car and ensuring that they are in proper working order is essential. If you think your Audi A4 is a lemon, we are here to help get you the proper reparations that you deserve.
The 2018 Audi Q7 problems are just another example of Audi lemon cars. There are numerous different problems that Audi Q7 owners continue to have, some of them as significant as malfunctioning engines and ineffective braking systems.
One of the problems that many Audi lemons seem to have is faulty transmissions that stick, jerk or hesitate. The transmission is a vital part of a vehicle’s powertrain and issues like this can be frustrating and dangerous.
“TRANSMISSION: HORRIBLE, super annoying huge lag when switching between D-N-R, will make you hear lots of honking in the busy NY streets. Odd gating (gate sensors) of the gear lever will make you miss the gears (D-N-R) quite often.”
Many Audi’s have experienced engine issues in certain, untrusted models. There have been massive recalls as a result of many of these issues and it is essential that you take action against Audi if problems like this arise for you.
“I have had this car for less than a year, and on two separate occasions it has completely shut down while I was driving. Both times the car was towed to the dealership where they could not duplicate the problem. Therefore no repairs were made. Audi will not buy the car back, and I am left wondering when and where I will be stranded with my young children. Hopefully somewhere safe and not far from home. Not cool. I will never buy another Audi.”
Breaks are arguably one of the most important parts of a car, and working breaks are an absolute necessity. While many car manufacturers are working to improve the quality and dependability of their breaks, Audi seems to be taking steps in the wrong direction. Break issues are an unacceptable quality of an Audi lemon and should be addressed immediately.
“My brand new Audi A4 was in the shop 5 times for brake problems with no answers or results. They insisted on performing the same “fix” each time, and each time my brakes ended up worse. I have never had so many problems with any vehicle…Very disappointed with the purchase and customer care. I will not buy another Audi.”

If you have any suspicions that your Audi might be a lemon, give us a call for a free consultation.
When your Audi experiences issues, the Audi manufacturer has the opportunity to make a reasonable number of repairs before your vehicle is claimed a lemon. This number differs from state to state, but in California, this criteria has been met if one of the following has happened:
Even luxury automakers like Audi can’t be counted on to send perfect Audi vehicles off the lot every time. When you’re selling over 200,000 Audis each year, it’s not unheard of for a few models to come off the assembly line with defects. And when that happens, consumers either unknowingly purchase a lemon vehicle, or, if a large number of Audis are affected and the manufacturer catches their mistake, a recall is issued.
A recall is what happens when a manufacturer agrees to repair widespread safety issues or defects with its cars for free. When cars don’t live up to federal safety standards, either the manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will issue a recall by model, manufacturing date or VIN.
Over the years, Audi has had issues with a number of recalls for problems with things like sunroofs and warning lights. But the manufacturer has also had several recalls over more serious defects, like with the fuel lines, brakes, and steering. And like several other manufacturers, Audi was swept up in the wave of vehicles recalled as part of the Takata airbag issues.
We’re listing five of the most recent recalls below. If you have any of the models mentioned and haven’t yet sought repairs for your vehicle, you should contact the dealership where you purchased your car. You can also check the Audi website or the NHTSA website — by using your vehicle’s VIN, you can look up Audi recalls seeing if your car was affected.

Brett and his team made everything so easy to understand and seamless.

Everything Was So Easy
After the torture we went through with our dealership on our Lemon Law car and the subsequent challenge of trying to find a responsive, knowledgeable attorney to represent our case, we were at our wit’s end and highly skeptical when we found Brett Shainfeld.

He adapted quickly to our preferred mode of communication (electronic or voicemail, rather than live discussions), and consistently kept us informed as to what was happening with our case, as well as what to expect next. And the best part is that he successfully negotiated our case with the manufacturer.
