In May 2107 our client went to Volkswagen Kearney Mesa in San Diego to purchase a certified car. Volkswagen Kearney Mesa showed him a 2016 Volkswagen Touareg. He alleges the dealership told him the Touareg was Volkswagen “certified” and even posted a Buyers Guide stating the 2016 Volkswagen Touareg was a certified pre-owned vehicle. He also alleges Volkswagen Kearney Mesa represented the Touareg was covered by Volkswagen’s original factory warranty.

The law requires that when a vehicle is sold as “certified,” the consumer must be given, prior to the sale, a certified pre-owned checklist indicating each of the components inspected. Our client alleges he was never given a certified pre-owned checklist. Our client alleges that upon leaving the Volkswagen Kearney Mesa’s dealership, and continuing thereafter, he experienced problems with the 2016 Volkswagen Touareg veering from the driving lane. He further alleges that after almost 30,000 miles the Touareg has still not been repaired. The law also has strict requirements when a dealer claims it has “certified” a vehicle and cannot sell a vehicle as certified if it has structural damage. Our client further alleges the 2016 Volkswagen Touareg sustained undisclosed accident damage and should not have been represented or sold as a certified Volkswagen.
