RepairPal Expert Overview:

Wiring for the power siding door may contact the lower sliding door hinge bracket. Over time, the wiring may become damaged, creating an electrical short circuit. This short circuit could cause the latch mechanism located inside the sliding door to overheat and possibly catch fire. Dealers will inspect, repair, and reroute the affected wiring as necessary to correct this concern.

This required information was left out of the owner's manual: "If the dashboard mounted airbags were to deploy, any objects placed on or near the airbag could cause injury to the vehicle occupants."  Volkswagen will mail an insert containing the required airbag warning to correct this omission.
