VW Recalls Some 2012-13 Beetles

Volkswagen is recalling 2,471 model-year 2012 and 2013 versions of the Beetle coupe because of problems with the airbag occupant sensor, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from February through August 2012 and are equipped with leather sport seats. (Check your vehicle build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.) If the front passenger seat gets wet, the occupant control module may not detect a child in the seat, and the airbag will not be disabled, NHTSA says. In the event of a crash, the airbag could injure the child. The safest place for children younger than 12 is the backseat.

Volkswagen has not yet provided an owner notification schedule, but dealers will replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Volkswagen at 800-822-8987 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
