Safety agency probes VW SUV lighting problem
U.S. safety regulators are investigating thousands of Volkswagen SUVs because the outside lights can go out unexpectedly. The probe affects 61,000 VW Tiguans from the 2009 through 2011 model years.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says 26 drivers have complained about headlights, tail lights and turn signals going dark.

Investigators have not yet determined if it’s bad enough to cause a recall.
