2012 Volkswagen Jetta Recalls
The driver's side air bag may not be powered due to a loss of electrical connection from the clock spring sliding contact in the steering wheel caused by contamination. Dealers will repair the vehicle free of charge.
If a rear suspension trailing arm becomes bent, its durability may be compromised and it could break unexpectedly. If this were to occur vehicle control would be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. When parts become available, dealers will install a sheet metal inlay on each of the rear axle trailing arms to prevent sudden loss of vehicle control should a rear trailing arm suddenly break.
The accessory stainless steel exhaust tips protrude past the end of the vehicle too far, and can injure a person walking by. Dealers will replace the stainless steel exhaust tips as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
