Exclamation 2018 Volkswagen Atlas Recall: Brake Calipers



A reduction of braking performance can increase the risk of a crash.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V369000

Manufacturer Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

Components SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC

Potential Number of Units Affected 10,206

Summary

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, Passat, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Golf, Golf SportWagen and GTI and Audi Q5 and SQ5 vehicles. The brake caliper pistons on these vehicles may have insufficient coating, potentially reducing the brake performance.

Remedy

Volkswagen and Audi will notify their owners. Audi dealers will bleed the rear brakes. Volkswagen dealers will inspect the brake system and as necessary, bleed the front brakes (Atlas models only) or bleed the rear brakes (all other Volkswagen models). Note: Owners are advised not to drive their vehicles until the brake system has been checked. The recall is expected to begin before July 31, 2018. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298 and Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's numbers for this recall are 47N8, 47N9, and 47N6.

Since I am driving my Atlas in Germany, can I find out anywhere, if my Atlas is affected?

Size does matter...

@RockingRick i am not expert, but based on the report it appears to be a CA production line. the VIN 1V2NR2CA0JC565696 - 1V2KR2CA2JC574970

and the build dates of APR 09, 2018 - JUN 04, 2018.

I assume the CA means California build. I purchase my car in CA, end of March and my vin is not between these numbers. So start with this.
