MAY 2016 -- Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2016 Toureg vehicles manufactured July 7, 2015 to March 3, 2016.

MORE RECALL INFO: 


MARCH 2011 -- Volkswagen is recalling certain model year 2011 Touareg Hybrid vehicles, manufactured from July 2, 2010, through February 3, 2011. The certification labels on these vehicles contain incorrect tire pressure information and therefore fail to comply with the requirements of motor vehicle safety standard no. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims." Incorrect tire pressure information could lead to an owner improperly inflating the vehicle tires. Driving on improperly inflated tires can lead to premature tire wear and possibly a crash. Dealers will install an overlay containing the correct tire pressure information onto the existing vehicle certification label free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before April 29, 2011.   11V-195

JULY 2009 -- Volkswagen is recalling 14,416 MY 2007-2009 Touareg vehicles. The fastening struts on the roof edge spoiler can crack, causing the spoiler to become loose and possibly detach from the vehicle without warning, even though initially the spoiler may feel secure. If this happens, the spoiler could cause injury by striking persons outside the vehicle or could become an obstacle to other drivers, possibly resulting in a crash. Dealers will install reinforcement wedges to the roof edge spoiler free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during August 2009.  09V-248

The recall is expected to begin during February 2008. 08V-035
