Bulletin Issued Aug 4
Volkswagen issued a bulletin recalling certain model year vehicles:
- 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, Passat, and Tiguan
- 2010-2013 Eos and Jetta
- 2011-2014 Golf and GTI
- 2011-2013 Jetta Sportwagen
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.
Inspect Your Vehicle Now – You May Be at Risk
This recall is important because 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.
