Notably, damage to the wiring of the Volkswagen cars could result in issues in the airbags not deploying properly. This in turn could cause injuries to people in the vehicle, as per reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Furthermore, the wiring issue could also possibly be the cause of other problems in the Volkswagen vehicles such as the vehicle's windows rolling down on their own and its electronic parking brake causing the cars to go undesirable speeds.

At present, Volkswagen does not have a fix for their issues, but the company will be offering a reimbursement program for the vehicles that have been recalled. Adding to this, the recall includes Volkswagen Atlas 2019 to 2023 models and their Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport 2020 to 2023 models.

Adding to this, Volkswagen will let owners and dealers via mail on the 10th of May this year if their vehicles are going to be a part of the recall. Volkswagen will also reach out once more when fixes towards their issues are developed so owners can have their SUVs repaired.
