problem #2

Dec 122017


  • 51,000 miles
The contact owns a 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan. While driving approximately 35 mph and making a left turn, a noise was heard coming from the steering wheel and the air bag warning indicator illuminated. The contact also stated that the controls located on the steering wheel for the cruise control, bluetooth, and horn failed to operate. In addition, the contact was unable to use the rear middle seat because the seat belt failed to extend. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer or independent mechanic to determine the cause of the failure. The manufacturer was contacted and stated that the vehicle was not under warranty. No further assistance was offered. The approximate failure mileage was 51,000.

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.
