VW recalls 150,000 Passats for headlight problem

DETROIT (AP) — Volkswagen is recalling about 150,000 Passat
midsize cars because the headlights can be damaged if the hoods are
closed roughly.
The recall affects cars from the 2012 and 2013
model years. VW says if the hoods are closed hard, the vibration or
impact can cut off electricity to the low-beam headlights. Drivers would
see a dashboard warning light if this happens.
Volkswagen says
the problem hasn’t caused any crashes or injuries. VW dealers will
install an improved bulb fitting and adjust the hood bumpers if needed
at no cost to owners.
