Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 4,875 2017-model year Jetta cars so dealers can affix a corrected tire information label, which will help vehicle owners guard against vehicle overloading.
The Jetta vehicles at issue have incorrect information on the tire information label, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. As a result, vehicle owners may unwittingly overload the car and cause tire damage or harm vehicle handling.
The recall is expected to begin this month. Vehicle owners can reach Volkswagen customer service at (800) 893-5298. Volkswagen's number for the recall is 01B8.
