Volkswagen is recalling 18,500 MY 2009 Routan vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard NO. 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.” The owner’s manual was printed without the FMVSS NO. 208 required information explaining that no object should be placed over or near the air bag on the instrument panel. Any such objects could cause injury to the vehicle’s occupants in the event of a crash severe enough to cause the air bag to inflate. Dealers will send an owner’s manual insert containing the required air bag information for owner installation or dealers will install in the event the owner prefers assistance from the dealer. The recall was to begin on or before July 31, 2009. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
