Summary of Complaint

BOUGHT A NEW 2020 VW TIGUAN IN JULY OF 2020 IN MARYLAND AND IN OCT 2020 MY CAR STARTED TO STINK LIKE MILDEW FROM THE BAD MOONROOF DRAINS THAT DRAINED RAINWATER INTO MY CAR. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALERSHIP 2 TIMES TO HAVE THE CARPETS AND FLOOR MATS REPLACED AND IT STILL STINKS. I TOOK IT TO A PREMIER DETAILING COMPANY TO DO AN EXTREME OZONE AND INTERIOR DETAILING, STILL STINKS (STILL OWED REIMBURSEMENT FOR THIS FROM VW). THE DETAILING PROFESSIONAL OF 20 YEARS AT THE PREMIER DETAILING SHOP SAYS THIS KIND OF MILDEW ODOR CANNOT BE REMOVED. I AM TRYING TO GET THIS LOOKED AT FOR A THIRD TIME AT A VW DEALER BUT AM GETTING THE RUNAROUND FROM THE SERVICE MANAGER WHO SAYS THEY WILL NOT LOOK AT IT UNLESS VW PREAUTHORIZES IT. THIS FALL UNDER MARYLAND LEMON LAW AND I GUESS VW IS TRYING TO AVOID ME TAKING THEM TO COURT. I AM LOOKING FOR MY MONEY BACK FROM VW OR FOR THEM TO PUT ME INTO ANOTHER VEHICLE AND THEY ARE JUST GIVING ME THE RUNAROUND. VW KNEW OF THIS ISSUE ON MY MODEL WHEN THEY SOLD THIS CAR TO ME BUT VW REFUSES TO PUT A RECALL OUT ON THIS THOUGH HUNDREDS OF TIGUAN'S WITH MOONROOFS ARE AFFECTED. MY BEST FRIEND HAS A SEVERE MOLD/MILDEW ALLERGY AND SHE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET INTO MY CAR, A FRIEND HAS ALREADY HAD AN ASTHMA ATTACK IN THE CAR, AND I AM CONCERNED OF THE LONG TERM AFFECTS THE MILDEW IN THE CAR IS HAVING ON MY HUSBAND AND I SINCE THIS IS THE ONLY VEHICLE WE HAVE.

I HAVE BEEN ALMOST BEEN REAR ENDED THREE TIMES BECAUSE OF THIS AND ALMOST HIT FROM THE SIDE WHEN THE THE SENSOR ENGAGED WHEN I WAS MORE THAN HALFWAY OUT INTO THE FIRST LANE TO MAKE MY TURN. VW DEALER THAT I BOUGHT THE CAR FROM SAID, IT IS THE DRIVER'S RESPONISBILITY TO MANUALLY TURN OFF THE FRONT ASSIST COLLISION SENSOR EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU INTEND TO DRIVE THE CAR.

THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO FAIL WHILE PARKED, THE CHECK ENGINE AND EPC LIGHTS CAME ON. IT BEGAN TO FAIL AS IF IT HAD NO STRENGTH. ON DECEMBER 23, THE DEALER WAS TAKEN FOR THE THIRD TIME DUE TO THE SAME PROBLEM, THE FIRST TIME THEY TOLD US THAT IT WAS GASOLINE (PUMA) THAT THAT BRAND COULD NOT BE USED, THEY CHANGED THE BRAND TO SHELL AND CONTINUED WITH THE PROBLEM. BEFORE THIS HAPPENED, THE DELER MADE US A RECALL OF SOMETHING AND AFTER THIS IT WAS THAT THE FAILURES BEGAN. THE BUS ONLY HAS 3,500 MILES. THE LAST THING THEY TOLD US THAT WHAT IS DAMAGED IS THE EVAPORATOR TODAY IS DECEMBER 30 AND THEY HAVE NOT RETURNED THE VEHICLE TO ME.

Summary of Complaint

MY CAR ALERTS ME AT RANDOM TIMES WHEN I AM DRIVING DOWN OPEN WINDING ROADS THAT I AM GOING TO GET IN A COLLISION WHEN THERE ARE NO CARS OR OTHER VEHICLES ON THE ROAD. IT ALSO GOES OFF WHEN I'M DRIVING THROUGH CONSTRUCTION AND THERE'S CONES ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD BUT I'M NOT EVEN CLOSE TO HITTING. IN MICHIGAN, WE HAVE A LOT OF CONSTRUCTION SO IT SHOULDN'T BE GOING OFF AND SCARING ME ALL THE TIME. IT WILL ALSO HAPPEN IN SPURSE, SO IT'LL GO OFF THREE OR FOUR TIMES ON THE SAME ROAD IN THE SAME DAY AND THEN NOT GO OFF AGAIN FOR WEEKS. I'VE TAKEN IT IN TO THE DEALER TWICE TO BE LOOKED AT AND BOTH TIMES THEY FOUND NOTHING WRONG. IT CONTINUES TO RANDOMLY ALERT BE WHEN I AM NOT IN DANGER OF AN ACCIDENT BUT IT ENDS UP SCARING ME ANYWAYS AND MAKING ME THINK I'M ABOUT TO BE HIT. IT HAS GONE OFF ON THE HIGHWAY, OPEN ROADS, CITY STREETS, AND CONSTRUCTION ZONES. THANKFULLY THE AUTO-BREAKING HASN'T TURNED ON BUT I'M ALSO CONCERNED IT WILL AND THEN THAT ITSELF WILL CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. I BELIVE WHATEVER SENSOR IT USES IS FAULTY, BUT AGAIN THE DEALERSHIP HAS REAFFIRMED BE TWICE THAT THEY SAW NO ISSUES WITH IT.

Summary of Complaint

MY CHANGE OIL SERVICE LIGHT CAME ON AND KEPT REMINDING ME DAILY FOR 10 DAYS THAT I NEEDED AN OIL CHANGE. I TOOK IT TO THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP TODAY AND THEY SAID THEY WOULD ONLY CHANGE THE OIL AT 10,000 MILES. I ONLY HAD 5800 MILES BUT THE OIL WAS LOW SO THEY ADDED OIL. I HAVEN'T EVEN HAD THE CAR 6 MONTHS. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE NEW ENGINES OR SHOULD THE OIL REALLY BE CHANGED AT 6000 MILES? I SHOULD NOT BE HAVING ISSUES WITH A BRAND NEW VEHICLE. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE BY VOLKSWAGEN TO CORRECT THIS ISSUE.
