Vehicles Affected: Approximately 3,700 model-year 2017-18 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited SUVs

The Problem: The driver front airbag may not be intended for use in vehicles sold in the U.S., which may not protect the driver as intended in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the steering wheel and driver front airbag module for free.

What Owners Should Do: Volkswagen will begin notifying owners April 10. Owners can call the automaker at 800-893-5298, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
