Volkswagen is recalling 71,043 of its redesigned 2011 Jetta sedan for an improperly configured wiring layout. The flaw is associated with the anti-theft system and horn. The company says there have been no injuries associated with the problem.
Models affected by the recall were built between March 2010 and March 2011. You can find the build date of your car by looking at a sticker on the driver’s side doorjamb.
A timeline was not announced, but Volkswagen will contact owners via mail. Owners can call VW at 800-822-8987 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236.
