Problem Description

The locking mechanism in the articulated trailer hitch may be defective. Consequently, the trailer hitch might not be correctly locked and could swing out, causing the trailer to drop while the vehicle is in motion.

The Volkswagen Tiguan models affected by this recall were manufactured between February 2018 and December 2018. Vehicles with a retrofitted trailer hitch are also affected.

Volkswagen recall code: 66K4
