There isn't a recall since there isn't a fix that's approved yet.

VW is still trying to get EPA to agree that the V6 TDI is fully compliant.

Yes, there is for the brake pedal.

Call your dealer.

Otherwise, if this is about the EPA nonsense, stay in touch by reading the 440 page thread on it where all EPA queries, comments, information and hot air are logged.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

There is some problem with a clip possibly being installed wrong or missing on the brake pedal, which it might fall off.

I haven't actually received a recall notice yet, so it may only be inspected during a regular service visit.

The whole EPA-Justice Dept-VAG "dieselgate" issue is separate and there is no resolution yet. It remains to be seen what exactly will be the outcome. No one knows and it is entirely speculation at this point with everyone guessing.

I want my $5000 for the pain and suffering I have gone through and the ridicule of my friends laughing at me for buying such a dog. Not to speak of the rebuke of the milleniums for polluting their air. LOL. I love my polluter and will not let anyone get their hands on it. I live in a non emissions test state , YEH.

I am tongue in cheek, There have been rumors of the settlement deal that included a $5000 payment as well as a fix or buy back. Everything is in a state of plux to say the least.
