Volk­swa­gen is recall­ing 271,000 Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport SUVs in the Unit­ed States from the 2021–2024 mod­el years. The recall is due to a poten­tial fault in the front pas­sen­ger seat sen­sor mat wiring har­ness that could cause the airbag to not deploy in a crash.

If the sen­sor mat devel­ops a fault, it may deac­ti­vate the occu­pan­cy detec­tion sen­sor and dis­able the front pas­sen­ger airbag. This would increase the risk of injury for any pas­sen­ger seat­ed in the front.

Dri­vers of affect­ed vehi­cles will receive a warn­ing mes­sage on the instru­ment pan­el alert­ing them to avoid using the front pas­sen­ger seat if pos­si­ble until repairs are completed.

Deal­ers will replace the sen­sor mat and wiring har­ness free of charge as part of the recall. Own­ers can expect noti­fi­ca­tion let­ters start­ing on August 16th. 

Over 1,700 war­ran­ty claims have already been filed that could be relat­ed to this sen­sor issue. The recall aims to address this safe­ty risk for all impact­ed Volk­swa­gen Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport SUVs.
