Winnebago/Vw Complaint - LEMON - Winnebago/VW Rialta motor home
MICHIGAN -- I have a Winnebago/VW Rialta Motor home that is a $400 a month lawn ornament. It will not run and many many parts have required replacement/repair and it still fails to function. I purchased this vehicle because of name recognition, esthetic appearance, and perceived ability that it would function in a manner consistent with my intended use. I wanted to be able to drive this vehicle and use it for camping with all the amenities that visually presented themselves. I have been flat bedded in twice because this vehicle will not stay running. I have been in for service many times and reassured the problems would not reoccur. Not only do the problems reoccur but more problems occur. I have been told by a Winnebago representative not to camp in Florida because it is too hot and my vehicle cannot handle the heat in Florida and IF I insist on camping in Florida I must park under a tree. VW does not even bother to answer my certified letter, telephone calls or appear for deposition. The dealership for VW in Fort Wayne have added insult to injury by not returning phone calls to make an appointment and then not even bothering to say my first name correctly. I filed a lawsuit over a year and a half ago and all three parties to the suit have attempted to dismiss it and refuse to recognize this vehicle is a lemon. Winnebago, VW and Ben Davis in Auburn Indiana. A bad bad experience and I continue to wait for them to correct this unpleasant situation.
