Volkswagen has announced a recall for vehicles due to an exterior lighting issue.

The automaker is recalling approximately 150,000 model year 2012-2013 Passat vehicles manufactured from January 2011 through November 2012.

In the affected vehicles, the low beam headlight bulb may become loose and lose electrical contact. A loss of low beam headlights may reduce the driver's visibility and increase the risk of a crash.

Owners of the recalled Passat vehicles will be notified by Volkswagen, and VW dealers will replace the affected bulb holder free of charge.
