Volkswagen recalling 143,000 Atlas SUVs due to a passenger airbag problem
Volkswagen is recalling 143,000 SUVs because of a problem with the passenger airbag.
The German automaker says some Atlas SUVs have a faulty sensor on the front passenger side that is deactivating the airbag.
The recall affects 2018 through 2021 models and the 2020 Atlas Cross Sport.
Volkswagen is advising owners not to let anyone ride shotgun until the issue is fixed.
Officials don't know what's causing the problem and are working on a fix.
