The Problem: Some versions of the Volkswagen Beetle were equipped with summer tires that haven’t been certified for use in the U.S. That means those cars don’t meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards 110 and 139.
The Fix: Volkswagen is working to obtain enough replacement tires, and then will replace them for free at dealerships. Recall notices should be sent to owners starting in September.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 46 Volkswagen Beetles.
