Volkswagon Group of America, Inc., is recalling approximately 3,768 2017 to 2018 Tiguan Limited vehicles because they may be equipped with the wrong airbags.
The front driver air bag installed on these vehicles may not be intended for use in vehicles sold in the U.S., and incorrect air bags may not protect the driver in a crash, which increases the chance of injury.
To remedy the situation, Volkswagon will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering wheel and front driver air bag module, free of charge to owners.
The recall is expected to begin on April 10. Owners can reach Volkswagon customer service at (800) 893-5298. Volkswagon’s reference number for this recall is 69V2.
