Vollkswagen Recalling 420,000 Vehicles for Defective Airbags

Volkswagen is recalling 420,000 cars for a problem that stems from power cables that are meant to control the deployment of airbags in the case of a crash. In some cases, debris severed the cables, resulting in the airbag’s failure to deploy.
Vehicles included are:
2010 to 2014 Volkswagen CC, Jetta, Passat, and Tiguran
2010-2013 Jetta and Eos
2012-2014 Golf and GTI
2011-2013 Jetta SportWagen

Every day, we represent victims of personal injury and wrongful death as they seek justice, and lawsuits we have pursued have resulted in safety changes. Unfortunately, those changes came after the accidents and injuries happened. We believe it is vital to try to help prevent injuries and deaths. That’s why we publish recalls information about defective and dangerous cars.
