Volkswagen Recalls 136,000 Cars Over Anti-Lock Brake Issue

Volkswagen_Anitlock_BrakesVolkswagen Group of America is recalling nearly 136,000 Audi and Volkswagen autos to fix potential problems with their antilock brake systems.
The recall covers 135,683 vehicles.

Affected are:

  • 2009-10 Volkswagen Jetta A5 sedans
  • 2009 Volkswagen Jetta Sport Wagen,
  • 2009 Eos, GTI, Rabbit and Audi A3 vehicles
  • 2010 Volkswagen Golf A6 vehicles

According to Volkswagen, the control unit for the antilock brake system in these vehicles may fail when the system or the auto’s electronic stability control are activated. The company blamed the problem on use of an incorrect solder compound, which may cause cracks that prevent sufficient electrical power to flow. Volkswagen said it will notify owners, and repairs will be made free of charge.
