The brake pedal can break with more than 60,000 VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat models

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.

It now appears that the problem will be more widespread while a total of 63,328 Audi, Seat, Škoda and VW vehicles of the 2020 model year equipped with the DSG automatic transmission may be affected. According to the German Federal Office for Motor Transport (KBA), a defective welded joint is the reason. During this campaign, the entire brake pedal can be replaced by an authorized workshop if necessary. According to the manufacturers, no damage or accidents are known in connection with this defect.

With Audi, the recall affects 7,389 Q2 and Q3 models worldwide, while with Seat 3,723 Ateca and Tarraco SUVs. Škoda Auto must send a letter to 14,097 customers who have bought the Karoq and Kodiaq models.

The internal codes of recall for individual manufacturers are as follows:
Audi 46i7,
Seat 46i9,
Škoda 46i5
and VW 46i6.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
