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.
An unrestrained child who unexpectedly opens a door may fall from the vehicle increasing the risk of injury.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the child lock(s), free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
