Volkswagen is recalling certain model-year 2019-2020 Atlas, 2020-2023 Atlas Cross Sport, and 2021-2023 Atlas FL vehicles. The door wiring harness electrical contacts may corrode, disrupting the electrical connection and delaying the deployment of the driver or passenger front side airbag during a side-impact crash, increasing the risk of injury.
The remedy is currently under development. Interim owner notification letters informing owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed on May 10, 2022. A second notice will be sent once the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 800-893-5298 to learn more.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
