Volkswagen Recalls Vehicles for Tire Pressure Monitoring Malfunction

Nov. 7, 2022

The recall affects about a dozen models in the Volkswagen family.

Nov. 7, 2022—Volkswagen has issued a recall on 225,000 vehicles in the U.S., according to reports from Wilx New 10. The recall stems from mounting concerns over tire pressure monitoring systems not being able to detect air losses in all four tires at the same time. 

According to the report, “the recall covers certain 2019 Tiguan, Golf Sportswagen, Golf Alltrack, Golf R, and Audi Q3 and A3 vehicles. Also covered are some 2019 and 2020 Jetta, Golf, Atlas and Audi A3 models and some 2020-2021 Atlas Cross Sport and Atlas vehicles.”  

Volkswagen says dealers will correct the problem at no cost to owners. Notification letters will be sent Dec. 30.
