Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP is Investigating Potential Claims Against Volkswagen and Audi

Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP (“Kessler Topaz”) is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”) and Audi of America, Inc. (“Audi”).

Specifically, we are investigating potential claims concerning defective timing chain tensioners on behalf of owners or lessees of any 2008 through 2012 model year Volkswagen or Audi vehicle equipped with a 2.0-Liter TSI or  2.0-Liter TFSI engines.  Find out more by contacting our law firm by emailing or by filling out the consultation request form on this page.
