Volkswagen Recalls 45K Tiguan SUVs
August 9, 2018—Volkswagen is recalling more than 45,550 of its 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SUVs to fix electrical problems that can cause fires, Carcomplaints.com reports.
VW says the LED modules for the ambient light bars for the panoramic sunroofs can short-circuit, something that has already occurred with a few SUVs.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says VW dealers will disconnect the power for the sunroof LED modules until a permanent fix is available. But Volkswagen told dealers they should apply aluminum tape to the modules to prevent overheating.
