The first recall for VW Golf 8; Audi with an oil leak from the transmission (week 28/20)


English EN Español ES Français FR Italiano IT Polski PL Русский RU

This week’s recalls:
– Audi, VW – oil leak
– VW Golf 8 – e-call
– Volvo – seatbelts


10 recalls for 21 models were issued by nine carmakers in the 27th and 28th week of 2020 through the Rapex system. Two recalls were announced by Volkswagen, while Audi, Ford, Hyundai, Jeep, Kia, Peugeot, Toyota, and Volvo issued one recall each.

The emergency call service may not be functioning with the VW Golf 8 models manufactured between 18 November 2019 and 11 May 2020. This week, Volkswagen also announces a recall for Touareg SUV manufactured between 19 September 2019 and 29 November 2019. An oil line in the automatic gearbox may have a manufacturing defect and oil may leak onto the road. The same fault is also reported with the Audi A8, Q8, and Q7.

With the Toyota RAV4, the front lower arms may have cracks on some portions of their surface. With the Peugeot 208 II, the fixings of the rear shock absorbers are not properly tightened. With the Jeep Compass, the head joint of the windscreen wipers can be improperly formed, while with the Ford Transit and Transit Connect the fuse for the electronic Run On Water Pump (ROWP) is inadequate. This may lead to the melting of the pump body and wiring, increasing the risk of fire.

We wrote about a large recall for Hyundai and Kia models in a separate article: Hyundai and Kia are recalling 835,000 older cars due to the risk of fire, as well as about Volvo’s large recall: Volvo to recall 2,2 million cars over seatbelt problem.

See the table below for all the recalls from this week.
