RepairPal Expert Overview
The control unit that operates the vehicle's anti-lock braking system and electronic stability control may fail to operate when needed while the vehicle is being driven. This could cause loss of vehicle control and an accident.
Recall repairs on your Volkswagen or Audi must be performed by a Volkswagen or Audi dealership respectively. Volkswagen will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is unavailable as of the time of this writing). If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Volkswagen or Audi dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The anti-lock braking system and electronic stability control may fail to activate when needed due to a failure of the control unit that operates the systems. Dealers will update the anti-lock brake system control module software to perform a diagnostic test, and will replace units that fail this test free of charge to resolve the concern.
