Volkswagen Recalls 340k Cars That Fail To Meet US Safety Standards

Volkwagen is recalling 340k cars because they “may be missing required caps in the sockets of the low beam horizontal and vertical aiming screws.” We’re not sure why that is important, but we’re sure that they wouldn’t bother recalling the cars if it wasn’t.

The following cars are included in the recall: 2005-2008 Jetta models and 2006-2008 Rabbit, GTI and R32.

No injuries have been reported. Call Volkswagen with your questions: 1-800-822-8987.
