After taking car to VW dealer I received these repair estimates: Air bag control module needs to be replaced...seat belt assembly 655 recommend replacing right seat belt....crankcase breather hose recommend replacing breather valve. Was parked and idle was fluctuating abnormally...air bag light came on for no apparent reason and seatbelt works fine.

Takata recall - driver's side air bag stopped working the horn stopped working while I was driving. I found out that the horn wasn't working as I was almost killed by someone moving in to my lane and directly toward my car. Luckily, they saw me at the last minute., all computer communication in the steering column stopped working. Looked on line and saw that these issues were caused by a bad clock switch. Took the car to the dealer and I was told there was no recall for my car. They told me that the clock spring was no longer covered by warranty because I had 50,000 miles on the car. The dealer wanted to charge me $800 to fix the clock spring.
