Volkswagen Class Action

LAST UPDATED APRIL 14, 2016

McCague Borlack LLP, together with Barnable Law P.C., are part of a national consortium of class action counsel who commenced diesel emissions class actions pertaining to the engineering and sale of certain Volkswagen and Audi vehicles.  These actions pertain to the use of the so-called emission “defeat devices”.  Please go to the site https://www.volkswagenclassaction.com/ to learn more about the class counsel consortium, and the status of the class actions.


Press Release - September 25, 2015

McCague Borlack LLP has launched a national class action suit against Volkswagen on behalf of customers who purchased or leased diesel vehicles of the models and years listed below:   

• Jetta (model years 2009 - 2015)

• Jetta Sportwagen (model years 2009 - 2014)

• Beetle (model years 2012 - 2015)

• Beetle Convertible (model years 2012 - 2015)

• Golf (model years 2010 - 2015)

• Golf Sportwagen (model years 2009 - 2015)

• Passat (model years 2012 - 2015)

• Potentially other Volkswagen and Audi diesel models from 2009 to 2015.

The class action alleges

  • that Volkswagen improperly marketed and sold or leased these vehicles on the basis that the vehicles had certain performance and emission figures, and were effectively “cleaner” than other vehicles in the market; 
  • but that in reality, these vehicles were equipped with unlawful “defeat devices” which allowed Volkswagen to circumvent actual emissions figures.

The class seeks compensation for parties with vehicles of potentially diminished value and performance.

If you or a family member owns or leases any of the affected vehicles listed above, or you have any questions regarding this class action, please read our FAQ page, contact Peter Yaniszewski or David Olevson, of McCague Borlack LLP, toll free at 1-888-960-0010 or via email at vwclassaction@mccagueborlack.com, or go to our Registration page.
