Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document grants in full the Volkswagen Group of America's (VW) petition for exemption of the Audi A4 allroad vehicle line in accordance with Sec. 543.9(c)(2) of 49 CFR part 543, Exemption from the Theft Prevention Standard. This petition is granted, because the agency has determined that the antitheft device to be placed on the line as standard equipment is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the parts-marking requirements of the Theft Prevention Standard (49 CFR part 541).
