Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 2,535 model year 2018-2019 Atlas vehicles with Continental tires.

One or more tires may have been cured for too long during production.

Over cured tires may develop a break in the sidewall, resulting in sudden air loss or belt edge separation which could lead to tread/belt loss.

Either condition can cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tires, and replace them -- as necessary -- free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 4, 2021.

Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at (800) 893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 44R1.
