Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 128 model year 2021 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport vehicles.

The lug bolt holes on the wheels may have been machined incorrectly, preventing the wheel bolt from sufficiently attaching to the wheel bearing hub.

An insufficiently attached wheel may separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will inspect all four wheels -- and as necessary -- replace the wheels, lug bolt and wheel bearings free of charge.

The recall began March 4, 2021.

Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at (800) 893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 44Q9.
