Volkswagen Routan Vehicles Recalled

July 1, 2014
Volkswagen of America, Inc.
The Danger:
Road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the ignition key inadvertently moves into the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off, which will then depower various key safety systems including but not limited to air bags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The recall includes 18,526 model year 2009 Routan vehicles.
Sold At:
Car dealerships nationwide.
What To Do:
Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch. For more information, call Volkswagen customer service at (800) 822-8987.
