PhotoVolkswagen Group of America is recalling 366 model year 2016 Touregs manufactured July 7, 2015, to March 3, 2016.

 

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may be improperly calibrated and, as a result, may fail to warn the driver that the tire pressure is low. Additionally, the tire pressures printed on the Safety Certification labels are incorrect. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems."

 

If the vehicle is driven on underinflated tires, the tires may fail suddenly, increasing the risk of a crash.

 

What to do

 

Volkswagen has notified owners, and dealers will correct the TPMS settings and replace the safety certification label, free of charge. The recall began on May 13, 2016. Volkwagen's number for this recall is 44M9.
