Volkswagens at Risk of Unintended Rolling Away after Key Taken Out
Volkswagen announced in August that it is recalling some 679,000 U.S. vehicles due to an electrical issue that could cause the car to roll away.
The vehicles, which have been sold between 2011 and 2019, are at risk of rolling away after a driver removes the key after stopping and parking.
The problem is caused by buildup of silicate on a shift lever micro switch contact, Volkswagen said. Its dealerships are being asked to install an additional switch and circuit board on affected vehicles. They will also disable a micro switch installed on the cars.
Volkswagen has not received any reports of injuries or accidents related to the recall.
The vehicles subject to the recall are Jetta, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Golf, Golf Sportwagen and GTI (2011 to 2019) models.
