Mfr Report Date20160715
NHTSA Campaign ID19V615000
SummaryVolkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2015-2019 GTI, 2015-2016 and 2018-2019 Golf, 2012-2019 Beetle and Beetle Convertible, 2017-2019 Golf SportWagen and 2011-2018 Jetta vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission, manual handbrake and keyless entry. A build-up of silicate on the shift lever micro switch contacts may enable the key to be removed from the ignition when the transmission shift lever is not in 'Park.'
ConsequenceRemoving the key while the shift lever is in a position other than 'Park' increases the risk of an unintended vehicle rollaway that may result in personal injury or a crash.
