2012 Volkswagen Beetle: New Recall

November 20, 2012

A new recall was announced today for the 2012-'13 VW Beetle. 

Seems some cars might not be able to recognize if a child safety seat is installed in the front passenger seat, and therefore won't disable the airbag, leaving the child at risk of an airbag impact.

As the early report says cars with leather seats are especially susceptible to the issue, it's unlikely our Turbo is included.
