The Problem: The underbody heat shield may not be long enough to protect the right half-shaft grease boot from heat, potentially resulting in a grease leak and increasing the risk of a fire.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the drive-shaft heat shield for free.

What Owners Should Do: Volkswagen will begin notifying owners in July. Owners can call the automaker at 800-893-5298, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
