Volkswagen Polo (2020)

Published on 30 June 2020

Problem description:

The double rear safety-belt buckles may be damaged due to a manufacturing error and have reduced strength.

This could reduce the protective/restraining effect of the safety belts, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an accident.

The Volkswagen Polo models affected by this recall were manufactured between 20 February and 11 March 2020.

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 Volkswagen 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.

Check the vehicle

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
