PhotoVolkswagen Group of America is recalling 797 model year 2017 Beetles and Jetta GLIs.

The recalled vehicles have incorrect information on the tire information label, possibly causing the operator to overload the vehicle.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims."

Overloading the vehicle may affect vehicle handling or result in tire damage, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a corrected tire information label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2017.

Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen's number for the recall is 01B9.
