Officials from Volkswagen announced a voluntary recall of 71,043 2011 Jettas last week. The vehicles are reported to have a wiring defect that in rare circumstances could cause the headlights or windshield wipers to turn off or cause the engine to stall.
The recalled Jettas were produced between March 2010 and March 2011. Volkswagen says that the vehicles were wired with the horn and theft alarm system connected to the converter box, which controls the vehicles' lighting systems, windshield wipers, and engine management system.
No injuries related to the defective vehicles have been reported. Volkswagen is sending owners of the vehicles letters on how to have the system rewired.
