Recall Golf Models Due to Rollaway Risk

Volkswagen vehicles are known for being reliable, sturdy, durable, and stylish. Many drivers choose Volkswagen cars because they're known for being dependable; however, a recent recall by Volkswagen has some consumers concerned. Here's what you need to know.

Recently, Volkswagen chose to recall 33,000 cars. The Volkswagen Golf is designed to be efficient, sturdy, and comfortable for riding in. While most drivers loved the ease of use this vehicle afforded them, there was one major problem with some versions of this model: it didn't have to be in "park" to remove the key from the ignition.

In typical vehicles, drivers can't turn off the car until the vehicle is placed in "park." Once the vehicle is in the correct gear, users can then remove the key and shut off the engine. Unfortunately, this wasn't happening with some Volkswagen Golf models. Instead, users were able to remove the key without placing the vehicle in the correct gear. This led to vehicles rolling away.

Volkswagen chose to recall these versions of the Volkswagen Golf. The solution to this problem is simple. Volkswagen will simply install a new circuit board and switch that ensure this isn't a problem for drivers in the future. Having a reliable vehicle that won't roll or shift when the car is turned off is essential when it comes to both driver and pedestrian safety.
