NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V483000
Component(s): AIR BAGS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 420,000
All Products Associated with this Recall: 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, 2010-2013 Volkswagen Eos, 2011-2014 Volkswagen Golf, 2011-2014 Volkswagen GTI, 2010-2013 Volkswagen Jetta, 2010-2014 Volkswagen Passat, 2010-2014 Volkswagen Tiguan
Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.
SUMMARY: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, Passat, and Tiguan, 2010-2013 Eos and Jetta, 2011-2014 Golf and GTI, and 2011-2013 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.
CONSEQUENCE: 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.
REMEDY: The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.
NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
