Vehicles Affected: Approximately 5,700 model-year 2016 Volkswagen CC sedans manufactured between Jan. 12 and Feb. 3, 2016; Golf R hatchbacks and Tiguan SUVs manufactured between Nov. 25, 2015, and Jan. 28, 2016; and e-Golf electric vehicles manufactured between Nov. 25, 2015, and Jan. 11, 2016

The Problem: Vibrations, such as those created by opening and closing a vehicle door, may cause the rear child door locks to disengage, allowing a child to open rear doors while inside the vehicle. If an unrestrained child unexpectedly opens a door, the child may fall from the vehicle, increasing the risk of an injury.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the child locks for free.

What Owners Should Do: Volkswagen did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-893-5298 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to for more info.
