Volkswagen recalls 143K SUVs due to ‘sporadic’ air bag issue
(CNN) - Volkswagen is recalling 143,000 Atlas SUVs because of a “sporadic” air bag issue.
Some of these vehicles are experiencing a faulty sensor on the front passenger side that is deactivating the air bag.
Volkswagen is advising drivers not to let anyone ride in the front passenger seat until the issue is fixed.
As of now, Volkswagen doesn’t know what is causing the problem and has not yet determined a fix.
The recall includes all model Atlases from 2018 through 2021, and 2020 Atlas Cross Sport SUVs.
No injuries have been reported.
Volkswagen will notify affected owners when a repair is available, according to the consumer alert from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Owners can visit NHTSA.gov/recalls or call NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 and enter their 17-character vehicle identification number to see if their vehicle is under recall.
