Recall Notice

LemonFree has found some important recall information regarding Volkswagen GTI vehicles

2013 Volkswagen GTI (8/4/2015)  

Campaign Number: 15V483000

Component Name: AIR BAGS:FRONTAL

Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

Description: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, and Passat, 2010-2013 Eos, 2011-2014 Golf, GTI, Jetta, and Tiguan, and 2012-2014 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.

Defect: A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Corrective Action: Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a protective cover over the steering wheel clock spring if the air bag light is off. If the airbag light is on and the steering wheel clock spring requires replacement, dealers will install a new steering wheel clock spring. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Interim notices were mailed to owners on September 25, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice on January 15, 2016. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.
