Circlip problem causes mass recall for VW
Thousands of Volkswagen cars are being recalled across the country, it has been revealed.
The Volkswagen Group – who are recalling an estimated 800,000 cars worldwide – have moved to confirm which models are being pulled back in a bid to fix faults.
In an official statement, the motoring giant confirmed the recall was necessary, due to a problem with a small clip in the pedal assembly.
Cars built between the years 2011 and 2016 are affected, with the recall crucial after the company discovered “a circlip could be loose on the bearing bracket for pedals”.
17,219 UK-based Volkswagen Touaregs are being recalled, with the number of worldwide models affected stretching to 391,000.
On top of this, the company is recalling 14,600 Porsche Cayennes across the UK, also built between the aforementioned five-year period.
