Beginning in late October, Volkswagen will be notifying some 340,000 US sedan owners of a recall due to the vehicle’s headlights not meeting federal safety standards. The recall will affect the 2005 – 2008 Jetta models as well as the 2006 – 2008 Rabbit, GTI and R32 passenger cars.
The problem is some of the low beam horizontal and vertical aiming screws are missing the required caps. No accidents have been reported due to this production error.
I don’t know about you, but this recall sounds a bit much. Yes, let’s recall over 340,000 cars for missing screw caps – geeze. ***And, in an unrelated story, the US Federal Safety Commission has asked all Auto Manufacturers to issue recalls on the loose nut behind the wheel***
