Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 662,185 model year 2012-2020 Passat and model year 2018-2019 Atlas vehicles.
The blocking cap disabling the adjustment of the headlight's horizontal aim may not have been installed.
Without the blocking cap, the headlight aim can be adjusted out of specification, reducing visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, block the headlight horizontal adjustment free of charge.
The recall was expected to begin on July 10, 2019.
Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 94L9.
