Has anyone else experienced an airbag fault and if so was the dealer able to find the problem? Mine occured about 3 weeks ago. V8,1200 miles. Problem was found to be a connector under the drivers seat for the drivers airbag. VW instructed the dealer to clean the connector. You guessed it, two days later and the fault was back. I asked the SA if the bag would work correctly in the unfortunate case of an accident and was told that all the airbags except the drivers would work as designed and that the drivers might or might not work.
For the past 2 weeks the SA has been trying to get an answer from VW has to how to correct this problem but has gotten no response from VW.
I like the vehicle, have been very happy with the dealer, but I am concerned about driving the car with a fault on a major safety feature. I am also a little concerned that any company would not make correcting this problem a top priority. I am not wishing bad luck on myself but can you imagine what would happen if this car got in an accident and the airbag didn't deploy?
So anyway, has anyone had the problem and if so what was the fix?
