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.
Volkswagen Touareg Recalls
Volkswagen is recalling 2007–2009 Touareg models because the fastening struts on the roof edge spoiler may crack, causing the spoiler to become loose or even detach from the vehicle without warning. The spoiler could strike people outside the vehicle or become a road obstacle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install reinforcement wedges to the roof edge spoiler free of charge.
The fuel supply line may leak fuel at a connector which may not seal properly. Dealers will inspect and replace affected fuel lines free of charge to resolve the concern.
There is no information regarding the operation of the tire pressure monitoring system in the owner's manual. Volkswagen sent an owner's manual insert that contains the required information to vehicle owners free of charge to resolve the concern.
The mechanism in the seat belts that locks a child safety seat into place may not operate properly. Dealers will permanently install a clip in either of the affected rear outboard seat belts and provide an owner's manual insert free of charge to resolve the concern.
The rear seat belt buckle may not be attached securely to the body. Dealers will inspect and replace seat belt buckles as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The wiring harness for the tire pressure monitoring system may be mis-routed, causing the wiring to rub on the parking brake mechanism, resulting in a short and possible fire. Dealers will inspect the harness for proper routing and correct it free of charge to resolve the concern.
