Additional information:

Among the 25 recalls the NHTSA has announced this November comes news of the following:

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”) has recalled an estimated 5,509 model year certain 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan long wheel base (“LWB”) vehicles. The back-up lights in the taillight assemblies may not be bright enough. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

According to the NHTSA, if the back-up lights are not bright enough, other drivers may not see the vehicle reversing, or the driver may back into an obstacle, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do next? Volkswagen will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the affected inner taillight assemblies, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2017. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen’s number for this recall is 94J9.
