Volkswagen of America Announces Voluntary Recall

August 24, 2009

HERNDON, VA - Volkswagen of America, Inc. announced a voluntary recall involving 13,500 vehicles equipped with its DSG transmission. Models affected by the recall include the Jetta, Jetta SportWagen, GTI, and Eos built between September 2008 and August 2009.

The recall applies to 2009 model year vehicles along with a very limited number of 2010 model year vehicles. A small number of these may be affected by a faulty temperature sensor in the DSG transmission. Failure of the temperature sensor could result in illuminated warning lamps in the dashboard, and in rare instances the transmission may shift into neutral.

In the coming weeks, owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by Volkswagen of America to schedule an appointment at their local dealer to have their vehicle inspected, and if necessary, have the vehicle repaired.

Customers who have questions or concerns should call the Volkswagen Loyalty Center at (800) 444-8982.
