23 CC Vehicles in the US Have the Wrong Headrests

There are 23 CC vehicles in the US that need to be recalled because they have RoW headrests which don’t match up with US regulations. Here’s CarComplaints.com on what RoW means and why it’s a problem:

VW calls these the RoW headrests, meaning “rest of the world.” The RoW head restraint is adjustable in six positions and the U.S. head restraint is adjustable only in five positions.

‘Merica.

The recall is for 2016–2017 CC vehicles and expected to begin in June 2017.

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.

More Takata Inflators Recalled

Your vehicle might be involved in one of the largest and most dangerous recalls in automotive history.

Volkswagen is recalling 850,000 VW and Audi vehicles with Takata inflators.

You’ve probably heard about Takata by now. They’re the ones that made airbag inflators which sometimes explode with too much force and send metal shrapnel flying throughout the cabin. They’re also the ones that have been linked to a number of deaths and injuries. Needless to say, there aren’t a lot of Takata fans out there.

But wait, there’s more … replacement parts aren’t expected to be available until later this year.
