Volkswagen Has Recalled Over 8,000 Atlas SUVs and Passat Sedans
On August 28, 2018, major auto manufacturer Volkswagen recalled nearly 8,400 2017-2018 Passat sedans and 2018 Atlas SUVs. The company explained the recall by explaining that these automobiles may have braking issues stemming from a failure to appropriately tighten the brake caliper bracket mounting bolts. If you own either of the aforementioned vehicles, be advised that you may be at risk of brake failure and losing control of your vehicle.
As an owner of a Volkswagen Passat sedan or Atlas SUV must visit their local Volkswagen dealership in order to receive an official brake inspection and have various brake components checked and adjusted in order to meet acceptable standards of safety. If any repairs or replacements become necessary as a result of manufacturing error, they will be performed on the company’s dime.
