On May 12, 2015, the Vachon Law Firm filed a complaint in the Los Angeles County Superior Court against Volkswagen Group of America, Inc., doing business under the fictitious business name Audi of America, Inc. The lawsuit alleges breaches of both express and implied warranties, and is asserted under the California lemon law statute. The case is titled Jiminez v. Volkswagen Group of America, Inc., et al. (Los Angeles County Superior Court Case No. LC102918).
Lemon Law Claims Against Audi of America
The complaint in the Jiminez v. Audi of America lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff, an Alhambra, California consumer, went to Keyes Audi in Van Nuys, California in November 2012, and that while she was there she purchased a certified pre-owned 2009 Audi A4. The complaint further alleges that the Audi A4 came with Audi of America’s express warranty as well as the implied warranty of merchantability. It further alleges that after purchasing the Audi A4 the plaintiff experienced several malfunctions, including a brake light not working, excessive oil consumption, and other problems which repeatedly caused various dashboard warning lights to illuminate. According to the complaint, the plaintiff took the Audi A4 back to Audi of America’s authorized repair facilities at least eight times for repair of these defects, but that Audi of America’s repair facilities repeatedly returned the Audi A4 to the plaintiff without properly diagnosing and repairing the automobile’s defects.
Based on these allegations the complaint asserts two causes of action against Audi of America under the California lemon law, the first for breach of express warranty, and the second for breach of the implied warranty of merchantability.
