Recalls and service campaigns

Recalls address defects relating to motor vehicle safety and non-compliances with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. In the interest of safety, any recall affecting your vehicle should be completed without delay.

Service campaigns address product technical issues not directly related to safety or compliance and also can be emissions-related in scope. Service campaigns should be completed promptly in order to help prevent the problem from occurring in your vehicle.

The search tool below will return information on applicable recalls/service campaigns with customer notifications made during the last 15 years. For additional information: please contact your authorized Volkswagen dealer or contact us.
