Approximately 1,800 model-year 2020 Volkswagen Passat sedans are being recalled due to faulty airbags. The passenger frontal airbag may have been folded incorrectly and could deploy with too much force in an accident or collision, increasing the risk of injury.
Volkswagen will begin notifying owners on Oct. 30. Owners can call the automaker at 888-241-2289 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will replace the passenger frontal airbag.
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.
