Volkswagen has issued a recall for the new generation of the Golf GTI in the United States because of some problems found with the front stabilizer rods.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 2,001 units of the Volkswagen Golf GTI, from the new generation, will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of the problem with the front stabilizer rods. The steering issue was detected by the car manufacturer and it seems that the stabilizer link fasteners may come loose.
If this will happen, than it might interfere with the normal operation of the vehicle, considering the fact that it was designed to be driven fast. The company’s dealerships will be replacing the front stabilizer rods on all affected vehicles, free of charge. The models in question have been assembled between the 27th of January, 2014, and the 12th of May, 2014. The new Golf GTI is on sale across the U.S. for a month so many of these care are still in the dealers’ lots. For more details on the subject you can contact the NHTSA’s hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
