PhotoVolkswagen Group of America is recalling 23 model year 2016-2017 CCs.

Incorrect front seat head restraints (rests) may have been installed, possibly resulting in the seat occupant's head being inadequately restrained in the event of a crash.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 202a, "Head Restraints."

If the seat occupant's head is inadequately restrained in the event of a crash, there is an increased risk of injury.

What to do

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front seat head restraints, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2017.

Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 72G5.
