Is this covered under the Takata airbag recall. If not why. Vehicle is considered unsafe at this time if involved in accident.

problem #2

Mar 032012

Beetle GLS 2.0L

  • Manual transmission
  • 96,000 miles

My mechanic did a diagnostic on this and said maybe the sensor was bad. He said it was safe, but something about driving down the interstate at 70 mph with an airbag light on is a little unnerving to say the least. What if it suddenly deploys? Not my idea of fun.

problem #1

Beetle GLS 4.2L (?)

  • Manual transmission
  • 91,000 miles

For the second time, our airbag light has come on in our 2000 VW Beetle. This time, however, they charged $85 to run diagnostics only to tell us that something must have rolled under the seat and "tripped" the airbag sensor. So, $85 later, they "reset the sensor".
