Timing Chain Defect Lawsuits Filed Against Volkswagen and Audi on Behalf of Consumers Nationwide

Webster Book LLP has filed what are believed to be the first Virginia lawsuits arising from defective Volkswagen and Audi timing chain tensioners on multiple vehicle makes and models. These suits allege violations of various states’ Consumer Protection Acts and fraudulent concealment of the defect, resulting in damaged engines. Volkswagen and Audi have their U.S. headquarters in Fairfax County, Virginia. Volkswagen and Audi owners who have suffered engine failure as a result of the defective timing chain tensioner may wish to consult a lawyer regarding their rights.

UPDATE: The Court has preliminarily approved a class action settlement. We have detailed instructions and a form to assist you with opting out of the timing chain class action settlement so that you can pursue an individual claim here.
