This appeared upon inspecting my CARFAX Car Care record and I didn't see any threads yet.
I suppose my service advisor didn't mention it when I was in for recent warranty work (thermostat housing & oil pan leaks), as there is no fix available.

About this recall: In vehicles equipped with a conventional ignition switch, the polyfuse can fail,

available as quickly as possible, and we will send you another letter once repairs
can begin..."

Huh, well that's fun. Did you receive a physical letter? IIRC I saw a couple recalls/TSBs for my 19 GTI in Carfax reports, but I haven't experienced the issue described in all cases (which I guess would explain some of them just being TSBs). This being a recall notice though, I expect we'll see more information and physical mailers to impacted owners.

No physical letter, yet. I wonder if they pause notification until a fix is available (unless it's a 'don't operate' recall).
