Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 54,429 model year 2021 Atlas and model year 2020-2021 Atlas Cross Sport vehicles.

The air conditioning system drain tube could be blocked, causing water to leak inside the vehicle near the airbag control module.

A water leak may damage the airbag control module, causing inadvertent airbag deployment and increasing the risk of injury or a crash.

What to do

Dealers will repair the drain tube and replace the airbag control module -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Interim owner notification letters informing owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed on January 14, 2022. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available.

Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at (800) 893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 87H4.
