Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW will recall more than 60,000 vehicles of the 2020 model year with an automatic transmission. The reason is a poorly welded brake pedal pad.
At the end of last year, we wrote about a recall for around 38,000 VW Golf, Tiguan, Touran and T-Roc models. The pedal plate on which the driver’s foot rests when braking can deform or even come off under certain circumstances – see the link to our article below.
