Our San Francisco lemon law attorney knows the Volkswagen Golf and Passat are popular vehicles — especially in California — thanks to their compact build, sleek design, and superb gas mileage. 

However, many of the Golf and Passat models — both of which have been discontinued for newer designs — are frustrating their vehicle owners by exhibiting defects that cannot be fixed after a reasonable number of attempts.

Although the Golf has been replaced in the Volkswagen lineup by the Golf GTI and Golf R, and the Passat has seen its final production days, the manufacturer is still responsible for fixing vehicle defects while the cars are still under warranty. 

If you are experiencing vehicle defects with your Golf or Passat that is still under warranty, you may be eligible to file a California Lemon Law to pursue a legal remedy that fits your needs. We can help.
