Volkswagen Touareg Recalls
The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may not be calibrated properly. As a result, the system may not properly notify drivers of a tire that has low air pressure, which could lead to unexpectedly driving on under-inflated tires. This could increase risk of tire failure and a crash.
The pin that secures the brake pedal may separate, resulting in the brake pedal becoming dislodged, and preventing the brakes from being applied. This would result in the increased risk of an accident.
On certain hybrid models, the tire pressure label may be incorrect. Tire failure can result in incorrect tire pressure, increasing the risk of a crash.
A connector in the fuel line may not seal properly, resulting in a fuel leak. Leaking fuel causes odor and a fire hazard.
The owner's manual of the vehicle does not include instructions regarding the operation of the tire pressure monitoring system. This could lead to drivers being uneducated about low tire pressure warnings and lead to a dangerous driving condition.
When used to secure a child safety seat into proper position, the seat belts may not lock securely in place. This could result in serious injury to a child in an accident.
The bolt that secures the rear seat belt latch may not be properly attached. As a result, the belt could fail to secure a passenger in an accident.
The wiring for the tire pressure monitoring system may have been improperly routed, resulting in the possibility of it shorting and causing a fire, as well as an inoperative tire pressure monitoring system.
