The automaker said it has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about the voluntary recall, which it said impacts model year 2015 and 2016 Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Golf, Golf GTI, Golf SportWagen, Jetta and Passat vehicles with a 1.8T or 2.0L gasoline engine. “Volkswagen considers the safety and satisfaction of its consumers and passengers a top priority,” Volkswagen said in a statement. The automaker said it will notify all owners of the affected vehicles for them to set up an appointment with an authorized Volkswagen dealer. If the vehicle is identified as coming from one of the affected production lots, Volkswagen said it will repair the vehicle at no cost to customers.
In a notice to the NHTSA, Volkswagen said a remedy is still being developed but that it will send a second notification to vehicle owners once the plan is finalized, which it anticipates will be in March. This recall is only the latest setback for the embattled automaker.
