What's the Problem?
This recall affects Volkswagen Passat vehicles from model year 2020, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The passenger frontal airbags on affected vehicles may have been folded incorrectly affecting its deployment force, NHTSA said. This defect causes the vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." An incorrectly folded air bag can deploy with too much force, increasing the risk of injury.
Ford is notifying owners and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag, free of charge.
This recall began on October 14, 2020.
