Volkswagen Window Regulator Lawsuit Settlement

By Sarah Pierce


Did you purchase or lease a 1995-1999 Volkswagen Jetta, Golf, GTI or Cabriolet vehicle in the State of Missouri that had the window regulator mechanism fail? If so, you could be reimbursed for repair costs and receive an additional $75 from a class action lawsuit settlement.


The class action lawsuit alleges Volkswagen installed window regulators in 1995-1999 Volkswagen Jetta, Golf, GTI and Cabriolet vehicles that were defective and prone to premature failure. It also alleges Volkswagen made consumers pay to replace the defective window regulator part instead of fixing it at no charge. As part of the class action settlement, Volkswagen will provide the following benefits to current and former owners and lessees of 1995-1999 Volkswagen Jetta, Golf, GTI and Cabriolet vehicles built upon the A3 platform that were purchased or leased in the State of Missouri:


If you repaired or replaced a factory installed or genuine Volkswagen replacement window regulator that failed within 10 years of the date the vehicle first went into service, you will be reimbursed for any money spent to repair/replace the failed part, plus $75 for each documented incident or workshop visit in which one or more window regulator failures were diagnosed, repaired or replaced.


If you have a factory installed or genuine Volkswagen replacement part window regulator that failed within 10 years of the date the vehicle first went into service but have not yet repaired or replaced the part, you will receive a free repair or replacement of one or more window regulator parts at any authorized Volkswagen dealer within 90 days of the settlement notice date, plus a one-time payment of $75.


Keep in mind that window regulator parts are not covered in this class action settlement if they were damaged by an accident, collision, fire, flood or other outside influence. The settlement also doesn’t include repair or replacement of electrical components of the window regulator assembly, unless these components caused the failure of the window regulator part.


All claim forms must be postmarked no later than October 11, 2010. For more information on the Volkswagen Window Regulator class action lawsuit settlement, visit
