Volkswagen Golf Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview on July 7, 2014

The fasteners that secure the stabilizer links to the front suspension may loosen. This could interfere with proper steering of the vehicle, which could result in a crash.

Recall repairs on your Volkswagen must be performed by a Volkswagen dealership. Volkswagen notified known owners of affected vehicles beginning in July, 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Volkswagen dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted 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 Volkswagen recall number is 40K9/1W.

Caps to disable the headlight aiming screws may be installed at the incorrect locations. Improperly aimed headlights could cause reduced road visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

This could be considered a medium priority recall; this would change to high if attempts have been made to adjust the headlights. Please contact your Volkswagen dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
