Volkswagen, often shortened to VW, is a German automaker founded in 1937. It has been one of the world’s largest car manufacturers for decades. However, in 2015, Volkswagen was involved in a massive emissions cheating scandal that affected about 11 million vehicles worldwide. The company admitted that it had installed “defeat devices” in its diesel cars that could detect when they were being tested for emissions and reduce the output of harmful nitrogen oxides. As a result of this scandal, Volkswagen faced legal actions, fines, recalls, and reputational damage. It also changed its slogan from “Das Auto” to simply “Volkswagen” to reflect its humility and honesty.
If you are a consumer who has been affected by the Volkswagen emissions scandal, you may be entitled to compensation under the California Lemon Law. Consumer Action Law Group has a team of experienced attorneys who have represented hundreds of clients with their Volkswagen Lemon vehicles over the past decade.

Is My Volkswagen A Lemon?
Volkswagen owners may have rights under the lemon law if their vehicles suffer from repeated defects while under warranty.
