Has anyone successfully returned or traded in your Taos since this stop sale happened last week? What are your dealerships saying? What usually happens in situations where a new model is stopped once plenty have already been sold? Thanks in advance!

Media & VW saying just the AWD Taos. But I would be wary of any Taos now. *This is a Major Safety Issue -- & it will, of course, throw lots of shade on the Taos name -- all of them.
So glad I waited; always wary of new models. And VW has had lots of sketchy issues & huge fines ... makes you wonder about VW's quality control.
Hope the regulators are all over this.
Hope VW makes it right for you without question & quickly!

I have the FWD SEL and it has shut off on me 2x now. Also having issues with the radar on the safety features so they are trying to address that first. In a loaner.

First of all… we have been in VW’s for a LONG time now… but, recently switched from our Tiguan to a Taos FWD SEL… and have encountered the same issue. Luckily, we were not in major traffic at the time, and were able to restart quickly… but, our new Taos is in the shop, and we’re in a loaner… 🤷‍♂️

Volkswagen is going to proceed with my buyback. I dont think I will buy another volkswagen.
Sorry to see you go, but as long as your car has been in the shop, I don't blame you.
Glad they at least agreed to buy it back and hopefully you won't be out too much money.

What did they tell you. How long before you get your car back. Is the loaner at least comparable?

They wont give me a loaner. I called 4 dealers too. And up to 6 months I’d have to keep the car on their lot. 2 mo to even look at and up to 4/6 mo for the part of its just the sensor. I can’t oay on the car for 6 months and oay for my own loaner for that long too

That's total crap. Absolutely classic Lemon Law material, even if they gave you a loaner. Months?
Have you called VW corporate? I bet you could find a sleazy lawyer who could help you Lemon Law it if that's what you wanted.

Definitely call VW America! I got mine in July and Initially when I got the car my dad instantly saw the leak from the car sitting in the driveway. Took it in and ended up getting the engine taken apart and replaced! That was 3 weeks after purchasing. Then when I got it back the car started stalling and shutting off at red lights and stop signs. Alerting me to manually restart the car all while it was in drive. Then it got worse and shut down multiple times while the car was actually moving. The scary thing is the shut down isnt quick, it turns off and starts slowing down and the brakes nor gas works. I sent it back to service ASAP and told themI didn’t want it anymore. Currently working with VW who is now working on a buyback offer within the Lemon Law. And yes they have a loaner each time they kept the car. VW is offering to pay off the car, cut a check for all lease payments I’ve made and the down payment and incentive pay to to purchase another VW/Audi. But idk about that, I’m a bit weary now

I'm in the process of trying that right now... initial stages, I'm in Canada. Not holding my breath though! I've owned my Taos for 50 days and it's been in the shop for the last 30 days. :mad:

Hello, 2022 Taos S, 1700 miles, today the car stalled on me in the highway, waited 4 hours to get it towed by VW. car is at the shop but I have no updates on the car.

I want to get rid of this car because this is very dangerous.
