Its Shop Time Mondays: VWs Without Keyless Entry Being Recalled

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V824000
Manufacturer Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.
Components ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Potential Number of Units Affected 73,545
Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Volkswagen Atlas and Tiguan and 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vehicles that do not have keyless entry. The instrument cluster may not provide an audible warning to let the driver know that the key is still in the ignition when the door is open. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 114, "Theft Protection."
Remedy
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the instrument cluster, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 18, 2019. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen's numbers for this recall are 90L3 and 90L4.
