RepairPal Expert Overview
On certain hybrid models, the tire pressure label may be incorrect. Tire failure can result in incorrect tire pressure, increasing the risk of a crash.
This should be considered a high priority recall. Tires operated at the incorrect pressure can fail without warning. Please contact your Volkswagen dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you as to what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
Certain hybrid vehicles were assembled with the incorrect information on the tire pressure label. Incorrect tire pressure can result in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a new label with the correct tire pressure information. This recall is expected to begin by April 29, 2011.
