Volkswagen Recall 44J4/XO: FMVSS 138 TPMS Sensor
2012 Volkswagen CC
With the incorrect TPMS sensors, drivers will receive a constant warning from the tire pressure monitor system. The system alerts the driver but, due to incorrect TPMS sensors, the system cannot determine if the vehicle tires are properly inflated. This increases the risk that the vehicle will be driven with one or more underinflated tires, increasing the risk of a tire failure that may lead to a crash.
Tires — Pressure Monitoring And Regulating Systems
- Volkswagen is recalling certain model year 2012, Cc vehicles, for failing to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicles safety standard no. 138, "tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)." The factory installed wheels and tires were replaced at the port with accessory wheels and tires that were not equipped with the proper TPMS sensors.
- Volkswagen will replace the TPMS sensors with the proper sensors to make the TPMS system of the vehicles compliant with FMVSS 138. As of June 1, 2011, Volkswagen has contacted all affected customers to schedule the repairs free of charge. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
