      This is actually good news for me. I was planning to get my car a four wheel alignment but if I need the recall, when they do the springs, they will most likely have to do a 4 wheel alignment as part of the repair. So now I dont have to go out of pocket for the work.

      I checked my VIN and nothing is showing up (yet). Either they are slow to post or it does not apply to all vehicles. Time will tell.

      Have Fun!

      Checked my VIN about 9 AM this morning. Mine was listed as impacted. Called dealer they did not know but checked and saw the recall - said it was "rolled out" just this morning (although dated 3/6/19). Said VW would contact me when they get the parts and "package" released. At that time I should call back to schedule.

      Got me thinking if I bought some drop springs and when VW contacts me I can say I repaired the problem on my own and seek reimbursement. 🤣

      Nothing for ours yet either... I just scheduled my pano fix for next week. We'll see what happens.

      None for me. Looks like my car was not affected. On the bad side I wanted that free alignment (as noted above). On the plus side, any time I can get away without the dealer monkeys screwing up my vehicle is a good day.

      And your last comment I wholeheartedly agree!

      agreed. But I have to go back and have them fix whatever they broke when they did the sunroof lighting recall and cowl leak. A few weeks afterward the auto light system failed. Seems more than just a coincidence. I'm quite hesitant to have them messing about with the suspension.

      Just got an email from My Car Fax (which I have for free) letting me know my 2018 SEL has the recall.

      Just checked the VW recall web page using my VIN. My 2018 SEL-P is affected, but they state parts are not yet available. They further explain the issue affects the long-term reliability of these parts, so sounds like no big rush.

      Curious to know if cars that are affected have a certain trim/option package that have unique rear suspension components ie. 4-motion, 3rd row, towing, etc.

      It could be that or a supplier issue or both.

      The good news is that rear springs is literally the easiest thing to replace. Just remove rear arms bolt, drop control arm and there goes the spring.

      Or even quicker, just compress with spring with a spring compressor get it out and slip new spring in. I bet thats how mechanics will do it, with proper shop tools 15minutes job.

      Are they required to do a wheel alignment if they change the spring?

      Depends, if you remove bolt from control arm to install the spring then according to shop manual yes.
      However if you can just slip out the spring by compressing it with spring compressor then you dont have to, since you did not unbolt anything. Not sure if this is possible with Tiguan, I know for sure this is possible on CC.

      NHTSA has some supporting documentation that can give you a better warm/fuzzy to verify if you're in the clear or not- our build date was outside the Tiguan affected window by just a few weeks.
