The recall is for eight models, including the Jetta, Passat and Tiguan, with model years between 2010 and 2014. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday that debris can rip a cable that keeps the front air bag powered, which could lead to a failure to deploy. There were nine complaints from customers, the NHTSA said. No accidents or injuries have been reported. You can read more news about the latest vehicles at the gear heads website.
Volkswagen said it is still developing a fix for the problem and will notify owners when it does. But it said that customers who see the air bag monitoring light illuminate should contact a dealer immediately to have the vehicle inspected or repaired.
