Volkswagen Recalls Tiguan for Insufficient Back-Up Lighting

Volkswagen Group of America has issued a recall for certain 2018 Tiguan vehicles. The recall is for the vehicle’s back-up lights which may not be bright enough, increasing the risk of an accident. The company issued the recall on October 18, and an estimated 5,509 vehicles may be affected.

“The back-up lights in the taillight assemblies may not be bright enough. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, ‘Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment,’” the recall states.

Volkswagen will notify owners of the specified vehicles, and dealers will replace the affected inner taillight assemblies at no cost to the owner. According to the notice, the manufacturer expects the recall to begin December 2017.
