VW Timing Chain Tensioner Lawsuit Filed in NJ

A timing chain tensioner lawsuit has been filed in New Jersey claiming multiple Audi and VW vehicles are at risk of complete engine failure due to a manufacturing defect. From CarComplaints.com:

"The VW and Audi A3 vehicles are equipped with EA888 2.0L TSI engines with engine codes CCTA or CBFA. The remaining Audi vehicles are equipped with EA888 2.0L TFSI engines designated with engine codes CAEB, CAEA, or CDNC. The plaintiff says all the engines with these five codes are versions of the EA888 engine and all use the same timing chain tensioning system."

The lawsuit accuses Volkswagen of intentionally concealing the defect.
