Among the ten (10) recalls the NHTSA has announced this December, comes news of the following:

Logo - VolkswagenVolkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”) has recalled an estimated 73,545 model year 2018-2019 Volkswagen Atlas and Tiguan and 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vehicles that do not have keyless entry. The instrument cluster on the recalled vehicles may not provide an audible warning to let the driver know that the key is still in the ignition when the door is open. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 114, “Theft Protection.”

According to the NHTSA, if the driver is not notified by an audible noise that the key is left in the ignition, it can increase the risk of vehicle theft or crash.

Volkswagen will notify registered owners, and dealers will reprogram the instrument cluster, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 18, 2019. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen’s designations for this recall are 90L3 and 90L4.
