Volkswagen Recalls Cars that can Lose Control

Volkswagen has a BS problem. Wait … I mean an ABS problem.

Volkswagen engineers found a fault inside the anti-lock brake system control module that can cause the module to fail whenever the electronic stability control or ABS system activates. A driver will notice warning lights for the brakes, the anti-lock braking system and the electronic stability control system.

The issue can lead to a sudden loss of control in the 2009-2010 Jetta, 2009 Jetta SportWagens, Eos, GTI, Rabbit, and the 2010 Volkswagen Golf A6.

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.
