Volkswagen Passat (2018 – 2019)

Published on 15 May 2020

The brake pedal pushrod may be defective.

As a result, in case of failure of the electromechanical brake booster, the effort necessary to actuate the brake increases significantly, increasing the risk of an accident.

The Volkswagen Passat models affected by this recall were manufactured between 14 February 2018 and 4 July 2019.
