The Problem: If the front passenger seat gets wet in Volkswagen Beetles equipped with leather sport seats, the occupant sensor may not detect a child restraint installed in the seat. This means the airbag may still deploy in the event of a crash.
The Fix: Volkswagen will notify affected owners and replace the control modules for free. Owners may also contact VW at 1-800-822-8987. The campaign recall number is 69i9/W6.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 2471 2012-2013 Volkswagen Beetlesmanufactured between February 2012 and August 2012 equipped with leather sport seats.
