In almost 700,000 VW Tiguan and Touran models, there may occur a short circuit on the LED light bar on the panoramic sunroof, caused by the ingress of moisture.

The manufacturer has, therefore, announced a recall for all vehicles of the current model generations produced up to and including July 5 of this year. In Germany, there are about 30,000 Tiguans and about 22,500 Tourans, which are equipped with the large sunroof and the so-called ambient lighting. The number of cars affected in the UK is not known at this time.

“Under very unfavourable conditions, it can also cause a vehicle fire,” said company spokesman. “The worst-case scenario is a failure of the lighting in the sunroof and perceptible smell of burning. Customers should not continue to use the vehicle until repair,” he added.



At the moment there is no real remedy for the action under code “60C9”. It “…is still in the testing phase. As soon as the development-side releases are available, we can say more about it,” said the statement from Wolfsburg.
