Report Receipt Date: JUN 24, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V464000
Component(s): LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5,658


Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

SUMMARY:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2016 CC vehicles manufactured January 12, 2016, to February 3, 2016, Golf R and Tiguan vehicles manufactured November 25, 2015, to January 28, 2016, and e-Golf vehicles manufactured November 25, 2015, to January 11, 2016. Vibrations, such as those created by opening and closing a vehicle door, may cause the rear child door locks to disengage, allowing a child to open a rear door while inside the vehicle.
CONSEQUENCE:
If an unrestrained child unexpectedly opens a door, they may fall from the vehicle increasing their risk of injury.
REMEDY:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the child lock(s), free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 58C9.
