Volkswagen of America, Inc. today announced a voluntary recall of 4,218 Golf models in the United States to check for a possible welding defect in the control arm of the car's front suspension system. Volkswagen has determined that a very small number of 2000 and 2001 model year Golfs may have welds that do not meet the manufacturer's specifications, making it possible for the control arm to separate from its bracket, which could cause the vehicle to be difficult to control.
