WASHINGTON — The Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 5,658 vehicles, including the 2016 Volkswagen CC sedan, because of a problem with the child door locks, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"Vibrations, such as those created by opening and closing a vehicle door, may cause the rear child door locks to disengage, allowing a child to open a rear door while inside the vehicle," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "If an unrestrained child unexpectedly opens a door, they may fall from the vehicle increasing their risk of injury."
The problem was discovered during a routine quality inspection, Volkswagen told federal safety regulators.
There are no injuries linked to the recall, Volkswagen spokesman Mark Gillies told Edmunds.
Edmunds says: Parents and caregivers who own these cars will want to have them checked out at their local Volkswagen dealership.
