2017 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF

Report Date:
July 11, 2018
Campaign Number:
18V464000
Component:
STEERING:COLUMN LOCKING:ANTI-THEFT DEVICE

Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2015-2018 Volkswagen Golf and Golf Sportwagen vehicles. The build of silicate on the shift lever micro switch contacts may enable the key to be removed from the ignition while the vehicle shift lever is not in "Park." As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention."

Consequence Summary:
Removing the key while the shift lever is in a position other than "Park" increases the risk of an unintended vehicle rollaway that may result in personal injury or a crash.

Corrective Summary:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional switch and circuit board, free of charge. Volkswagen issued owners an interim notification on August 10, 2018. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 37L5.
