Recall Category: Air Bags – Passenger Front Air Bag folded incorrectly in apparent contravention of US FMVSS 208

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V533000 reports the Passenger Front Air Bag may have been incorrectly folded, affecting its deployment force. As such, these vehicles reportedly fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection”.

Volkswagen will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the passenger Front Air Bag, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 30, 2020. Owners may contact Volkswagen Customer Service toll-free at 1-888-241-2289 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Volkswagen’s designation for this recall is 69AY.
