2016 Volkswagen CC Among Vehicles Recalled for Problem With Child Door Locks


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.

The 2016 Volkswagen Golf R hatchback, Tiguan and e-Golf hatchback are included in the recall.

"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.

Volkswagen dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the child locks. A date has not been set for the recall. Owners can contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298.

Edmunds says: Parents and caregivers who own these cars will want to have them checked out at their local Volkswagen dealership.
