A recent recall for the VW T-Roc and Audi Q2 is to continue with another 25,000 Volkswagen Group cars, including Skoda and Seat. With their Karoq and Ateca models, an identical problem with the electric parking brake (EPB) has occurred.

As with VW and Audi – we wrote here – the new recall includes a combination of 1.0 TSI engine and a manual gearbox. The brake control unit evaluates incorrectly the gear sensor signal in the neutral gearshift lever position and releases the electronic parking brake. The vehicle can then move spontaneously, eg when the driver comes out while the engine is running. The problem occurs especially at temperatures below +5 ° C and we do not recommend using the ´Auto Hold´ feature until the software is updated.



The Skoda´s Karoq recall has the code “45H5” and concerns vehicles manufactured from July 2017 to August 2018. At Seat, the code is “45H3” and includes Atecas manufactured from April 2016 to August 2018. The spokespersons of both brands confirmed to the kfz-rueckrufe.de server that no accident caused by this defect is known to date. A half-hour software update of the brake control unit is done free of charge.

Looking at our archive, we´ll find out that the Seat Ateca is being recalled for the second time this year. The February´s action was issued due to the improperly case-hardened wheel-bearing housings on the rear axle which may break with the vehicles produced at the end of August 2017 – we wrote here. Even for the Karoq, it will not be the first record in the RAPEX rapid alert system. This year’s March recall was released due to a possible rupture of the A-pillar cover when the curtain airbag is deployed – we wrote here.
