VW Recalls Golfs for Park Issues

By Staff Writer August 02, 2018

Volkswagen Group of America Inc. is recalling 33,168 2015-18 Volkswagen Golf and Golf Sportwagen vehicles.

The build of silicate on the shift lever micro switch contacts may enable the key to be removed from the ignition while the vehicle shift lever is not in "Park." As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention."

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional switch and circuit board, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Sept. 8.

Volkswagen's number for this recall is 37L5.
