In April, Volkswagen will recall 12,600 Volkswagen Routan minivans because the ignition key may move while the van is moving, causing the engine to shut off. Apparently, the 2010 Routan minivans’ ignition keys slip into the accessory position turning off the engine. VW estimates that 378 of the vans have defective ignition switches.
What strikes you about this recall? For me, it is the fact that it begins in April. If someone gets hurt in the meantime, what exactly does Volkswagen say to them? I’m sure they would pay them a lot of money. But what would they say to them?
