Volkswagen Timing … a Chain of Fools ?

, , , , ,

It’s recently come to our attention that certain vehicles manufactured by Volkswagen have exhibited problematic timing chain / engine issues. We’d like to take moment and explore this problem in further detail, and suggest ways in which you might seek relief if you have, or currently are, experiencing this issue.

The problem engine at hand is known as the EA888, a family of three and four cylinder engines that are currently in use across many models of Volkswagen and Audi vehicles. The EA888 family is an Audi-designed unit, and it’s a four cylinder engine available in 1.8 and 2.0 liter sizes. Unfortunately for owners of certain vehicle models (see below), there are many problems associated with these engines. These problems include excessive engine oil consumption, timing chain tensioner failure, and leaking coolant systems. Our focus in this blog is the timing chain issue.

The timing chain is responsible for keeping valves, pistons and the crankshaft in tune with one another – such that power is delivered to the system and the engine’s pistons and valves synchronize during operation. Once the timing chain becomes loose, skips, or is otherwise out of spec, major problems can be expected – and some can lead to catastrophic engine failure. These symptoms include engine rattles, trouble starting, metal shavings inside the oil reservoir, oil leaks, misfire / loss of power while driving, and illuminated ‘check engine’ lights.  Oh, what fun !

Volkswagen models that may be affected include Beetle, CC, GTI, Jetta / Jetta SportWagen, Passat, Rabbit, Routan, Tiguan, and Touareg.  Of these, Jetta and Passat have the highest probability / record for problems.  Certain Audi models may also be affected, including A3, A4 Avant, A4 Sedan, A5 Cabriolet, A5 Coupe, A6, Q5, and TT.  Many lawsuits were filed – starting in 2016 –  and culminated in a combined class-action lawsuit.  The action resulted in a settlement by Volkswagen, despite their best-efforts to have the action dismissed.

If you think you may be experiencing these types of isues, you have options – click here to check your VIN, to determine whether your vehicle may qualify for reimbursement or other damages.  Or call us 916-672-8443 for a free phone consultation.   You will speak directly with the attorney, and we will answer your questions regarding your eligibility, and your rights under the California Lemon Law.  We will quickly help you determine your status in this action, and what to do next.

Please remember: if you have a vehicle which is under the manufacturer’s warranty, you are entitled to fair treatment and getting your problem fixed in a timely manner. If not, you might qualify for a repurchase or refund on your vehicle. It helps to understand your rights as a consumer, and the California Lemon Law expert is here to help you or someone you may know who is in this situation. If your vehicle is not functioning properly and is under warranty, you have rights under the law that you need to thoroughly understand.
