Recall Alert: 2009-2011 Volkswagen Tiguan


Vehicles Affected: About 62,155 model-year 2009-2011 Volkswagen Tiguan compact SUVS manufactured between July 2007 and June 2011.

The Problem: Due to a problem with the fuse for the exterior lights, the holder for the fuse that controls the vehicle's exterior lights circuit may melt, which could result in a partial loss of exterior lighting; this could diminish visibility and increase the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Volkswagen will notify owners starting this month and dealers will replace the fuse for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Volkswagen at 800-893-5298, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to for more info.
