Since day one it has seemed like a ridiculous "compromise" between a track ready car and an everyday vehicle.

It's a drag car rather than a track car. AFAIK track implies loop de loop while drag is simply fastest to infinity and beyond.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Volkswagen AG said Friday it is recalling 679,000 U.S. vehicles sold since 2011 that could roll away because of an electrical issue.

The automaker said drivers could remove the key after stopping without placing the car in park, which increases the risk the vehicle could roll away. VW said a build up of silicate on the shift lever micro switch contacts is to blame.

Dealers will install and additional switch and circuit board and disable a micro switch. A Volkswagen spokesman said there are no reports of injuries. The recall covers the Jetta, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Golf, Golf Sportwagen and GTI from various model years from 2011 through 2019.

 

I will test this at some point but I'm not particularly worried about this. That being said, I may make a mental note that this get addressed the next time I need service (if they don't bring it up).

Five major automakers have signed a binding agreement with California that will compel them to follow the state’s vehicle emissions standards. Its fuel economy rules are stricter than federal ones, which has put the state at odds with the Trump administration.

Ford, Honda, BMW and Volkswagen agreed in principle to follow California’s standards in July 2019, as did Volvo in March. The deal they signed with the state this week will mean they have to abide by those guidelines. “We went into this voluntarily, but it is now binding, it’s enforceable,” Spencer Reeder, director of government affairs and sustainability at VW-owned Audi of America, told the New York Times.

.....

I think we have talked about this before but California is too big for companies to ignore. Not really a surprise but it's official now.
