Volkswagen issues recall for more than 56,000 cars, SUVs due to rear coil springs issue

Volkswagen has issued a recall for more than 56,000 cars and SUVs in the U.S.

The recall was issued because the rear coil springs can break without warning. It can cause people to lose control of their vehicles.

The recall covers some Golf hatchbacks from 2015 through 2019, Sportwagens (2017 through 2019), the 2019 Jetta sedan and 2018 and 2019 Tiguan SUV.

A broken spring can damage a tire or become a road hazard, according to safety officials. It was not reported that there have been any crashes or injuries.

A parts maker used the wrong material or manufacturing process to make the springs, the recall says.

Contact dealers beginning April 19 to get faulty parts replaced.
