Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.(Volkswagen) is recalling specific 2023-2024 ID.4 vehicles due to the interior sunshade’s insufficient fire retardancy, violating Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 302. This decision comes after an internal test failure in May, subsequent unsuccessful testing, and discussions within the Volkswagen Product Safety Committee on September 8.

On November 1, Volkswagen opted for a noncompliance recall, addressing the issue by applying flame retardant to the sunshade at no cost. No replacement parts are required. Owners of affected ID.4 vehicles will receive notifications by mail starting January 5, 2024.
Earlier this year, Volkswagen recalled nearly 21,000 ID.4 electric SUVs due to faulty battery software that could result in a sudden “loss of propulsion,” as reported.
