Volkswagen is recalling several vehicles over accident risks. The issue, which could lead to tire damage, should not be ignored.
According to a series of reports, the Golf, Golf Sportwagen, Jetta, and Tiguan vehicles come with rear coil springs that could fracture. If this occurs while the vehicle is in use, the rear tire may suffer damage. This could increase the risk of an accident.
In the official recall report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, officials say that the rear coil springs are part of the vehicles’ suspension. As a result, this issue may impact the vehicle’s ride and handling.
So far, the company is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue. However, drivers should not ignore the potential dangers.
Volkswagen started contacting impacted vehicle owners in mid-April.
Models listed under this recall include 56,173 cars and SUVs. They are the 2015 through 2019 Golf hatchbacks, the 2017 through 2019 Golf Sportwagens, the 2019 Jetta sedans, and the 2018 and 2019 Tiguan SUVs.
If you have one of the recalled vehicles, dealers will replace the rear axle coil springs for free. You may contact Volkswagen directly to learn more about the recall and ask whether you should do anything immediately to avoid accidents.
