The Volkswagen Group of companies has been at the center of a lot of controversies lately.
On Wednesday, a German court found Volkswagen’s diesel-engine cars, including the Passat and Golf, to be guilty of cheating on emissions tests.
The company has agreed to pay a total of about $18 billion in penalties, the largest in U.S. history.
Volkswagen has been under fire for years over the emissions problems.
Volkswagen also has faced a number of recalls since 2011 over the air bags in its cars.
As a result, the company is now in talks with regulators to resolve its diesel-airbag emissions scandal.
The latest scandal, however, has raised more questions about the reliability of Volkswagen’s air bags.
How reliable are the car’s airbags?
Here’s what you need to know about air bags, and what to look out for if you own one.
Volkswagen’s Diesel-Airbag Recall In May 2018, Volkswagen filed a voluntary recall of about 1.6 million cars worldwide.
That was about half of the company’s total sales of 1.2 billion cars worldwide at the time.
Volkswagen recalled its first batch of air bags for the 2017 Passat, the Golf and the Passats.
The recalls were aimed at preventing a fire at a factory in Germany that had been reported to be at fault.
But the recall was quickly expanded and became the largest ever in the United States.
In September 2018, a new round of recalls were issued.
In this case, Volkswagen recalled more than 6.6 billion cars in the U.K. and Europe.
Some of those cars were also sold in the states of Ohio and Michigan.
The cars in these states had been previously reported to have problems with their airbags.
This was one of the biggest recalls ever, and Volkswagen was forced to recall more than 20 million vehicles worldwide.
The largest recall in the world involved more than 40 million cars.
The new recalls are part of a $14 billion global effort to address a series of flaws in the airbags used in VW’s cars.
How did the car recall go so wrong?
Volkswagen’s engineers did not fully understand the technology that allows air bags to work properly, leading to the fires.
The fire in the factory at the German automaker’s research facility occurred at around 5 a.m. on Sept. 14, 2019, according to a statement from Volkswagen.
As firefighters worked to put out the fire, they found that the air bag in the car had a short life.
The car’s fuel tank was too small to accommodate the compressed air that was coming out of the airbag, which was designed to prevent the air from escaping and overheating.
A faulty electrical connection between the air box and the air intake was responsible for the fire.
The air bag also failed to seal well enough against the temperature inside the car, which led to overheating and the fire in a fuel tank, according the statement.
How does the new recall affect other cars?
The automaker is also recalling cars that are already in service.
Those cars will be replaced with newer models that are certified by the U,N.
The United Nations has been investigating the fires, and it’s expected to issue a report in 2018 that could recommend that all new vehicles with airbags be recalled.
What are the problems in the cars?
Volkswagen has said that the fires happened because the air system in some cars had a defective connection.
The problem is that a faulty connection is an electrical circuit that can cause a fire.
Volkswagen says it fixed the problem, but it has been working on improving the car air system for several years.
This is the first time that a Volkswagen recall has involved more cars than the company has recalled in the past.
What else should I do?
The cars that were affected by the fires have been in service for nearly a decade.
If you own a VW car, check the mileage on the vehicle and see if you have problems that are related to the fire problems.
If the problem persists, call your dealer or Volkswagen customer service center.
