Volkswagen is recalling certain model-year 2022 Tiguan, Taos, and 2021 Tiguan long wheelbase (LWB) vehicles due to a rear suspension issue. The rear suspension knuckles may corrode, crack, and break causing a loss of vehicle stability, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 20, 2022. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 800-893-5298 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace one or both rear suspension knuckles.
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.
