United States, Bollywood Fever: Volkswagen is recalling more than 271,000 vehicles in the United States due to a wiring fault that could deactivate front passenger air bags when the seat is occupied. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced the recall on Wednesday.


The recall impacts certain 2021-2024 Volkswagen Atlas and 2020-2024 Atlas Cross Sport vehicles. The issue stems from the passenger occupant detection system (PODS), which may experience a wiring fault, potentially affecting the deployment of front passenger air bags.

To address the problem, Volkswagen dealers will replace the PODS sensor mat and wiring harness at no cost to the affected customers, according to the NHTSA.

Owners of the impacted vehicles are advised to contact their local Volkswagen dealers for more information and to schedule the necessary repairs. This proactive measure aims to ensure the safety and reliability of Volkswagen vehicles on the road.
