The labels on the affected vehicles display the incorrect tire pressure information — it’s 2 pounds per square inch too low for the front tires and 1 psi too low for the rear tires. The incorrect info could cause an owner to improperly follow vehicle loading specifications and increase the risk of a crash.
The recall will begin on or before April 29. Dealers will install a new sticker that displays the correct tire pressure information, free of charge. For more information, owners can call Volkswagen at 800-822-8987 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
