Recall 06V125000

Rear Suspension Link Breaks

Recall Details

A rear suspension toe link could fracture and result in the rear wheels changing direction. This can cause loss of vehicle control. Dealers will inspect the right and left toe links and replace them as required free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

A part that connects rear suspension components could fail, which would result in the rear wheels of the vehicle turning freely and affecting vehicle control.
