Volkswagen is recalling approximately 136,000 vehicles to fix their antilock brake systems which could cause the control unit for the brake systems to fail when the system’s electronic stability control is activated. Some Audi vehicles are also included in the recall. An incorrect solder compound used by the manufacturer can cause cracks that prohibit sufficient electrical power.
The recall includes the following year models:
- 2009-2010 Volkswagen Jetta A5
- 2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen
- 2009 Volkswagen Eos
- 2009 Volkswagen GTI
- 2009 Volkswagen Rabbit

Owners will be notified and Volkswagen will repair the recalled vehicles free of charge.
