Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) issues voluntary recall for 12,732 Volkswagen vehicles.
Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) today announced a voluntary recall on models produced between 2011 and 2015 to rectify the hydraulic pressure accumulator within the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox caused by a production deviation. A total of 12,732 Volkswagen vehicles have been identified to undergo inspection under the recall.
The affected models are Beetle, Cross Touran, Golf (Mk6 and Mk7), Jetta, Passat (B7), Passat CC, Polo (6R) and Scirocco. This exercise does not affect Volkswagen models produced from 2016 and newer.
The failure of the component can possibly lead to pressure loss, interrupting power transmission between the engine and gearbox.
The nationwide campaign will be executed in phases in order to manage the number of cases, and notification to identified owners will be conducted by mail with immediate effect. Alternatively, owners are encouraged to visit the Volkswagen website to check if their vehicle is involved or call Volkswagen customer care at 1800-18-8947 for further information.
