Approximately 730 model-year 2019 Volkswagen Arteon sedans are being recalled due to improperly installed electronic brake booster pressure input rods. This could cause disconnected input rods and reduced braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash.
Volkswagen will begin notifying owners on May 5. Owners can call the automaker at 800-893-5298 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect and correct the mounting of the pressure rod or replace the electronic brake booster and mounting of the pressure rod.
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.
