Certain Volkswagen Vehicle Defects – Serious Safety Risks

Consumer Reports Indicate Certain Volkswagen Vehicles Contain Defects Which Could Be Serious Safety Risks 

According to consumer reports, Model Year 2019-2022 Atlas, Atlas Cross Sport, Golf, Golf Wagon, Jetta, Tiguan, Taos vehicles contain a defect which causes many of the vehicles’ features to malfunction. According to these complaints, this defect exposes vehicle occupants to unreasonable safety risks including the braking systems unexpectedly engaging, windows randomly opening and closing, error messages displaying, and warning noises emitted. Additionally, this defect may result in airbag failure. These problems have persisted since the vehicles were launched. 

Volkswagen has long known or should have known of the defect and resulting problems yet has failed to disclose them to consumers. Consumer experiences suggest Volkswagen has not found a solution to the wiring harness defect and there are no non-defective replacement parts available. According to consumer complaints, when vehicle owners complain about the defect and seek a repair, they are often told parts are unavailable and will have to wait months for replacement harnesses, which are likewise defective.
