VW Recalls ID.4s

VW has announced a recall on more than 35,000 ID.4 SUVs, as the doors can open unexpectedly while the vehicle is in motion. The recall was published to the National Highway Traffic Safety Authority (NHTSA) website May 3. The recall applies to 35,325 model year 2021-2022 ID.4 SUVs.

According to the recall, the affected vehicles may have been manufactured with door handles that allow water to enter the circuit board assembly, which can cause the doors to open unexpectedly when the vehicle is subject to high lateral forces at speeds below 9 mph/15 kmh, the company says. Dealers will update the vehicle software and inspect the door handles as necessary, free of charge, the recall states.
