Vibrations Opening Child Door Locks in 2016 Volkswagens

Volkswagen just can’t seem to catch a break. Well, unless you count their child door locks. Those are breaking all over the place.

Simple vibrations are disengaging the rear door child locks in many 2016 VWs, prompting a recall.

A molding problem caused the locking mechanism to be improperly manufactured causing the position retaining mechanism inside the door lock to break

That’s a problem, especially for my toddler where her seat-kicking-snack-throwing-booster-seat-bouncing routine creates much more than a simple vibration.

The 2016 CC, Golf R, Tiguan, and eGolf are all involved. For specific build dates, visit CarComplaints.com.
