Takata airbag

For a number of years, the company Takata has been supplying the automotive industry with airbags containing defective gas generators, which may alter as a result of aging caused by certain climate-related influences (heat and moisture), and could therefore present a danger to you and your passengers in the event of an accident.

In addition to a number of other manufacturers, Volkswagen models are also affected by the global recall campaigns for Takata airbags.

A defective airbag therefore presents a serious safety risk to you and your passengers in the event of an accident. You can find more information here and check whether your vehicle is affected.

Mechatronics Unit
Mechatronics Unit

Volkswagen AG has established that Volkswagen vehicles with a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox, may over time, not continue to meet required production standards.

The mechatronics unit takes electronic signals and converts them into hydraulic power to operate your gearbox. In individual cases, the failure of a component can lead to a pressure loss in the hydraulic part of the gearbox, interrupting the power transmission between engine and gearbox.

We need to undertake an inspection to ascertain whether your mechatronics unit is affected and consequently requires replacement. The work required will take approximately 4 hours to complete and will be performed free of charge.

What should I do if my car falls under a recall?

If your vehicle falls into one or more of our vehicle recall campaigns we will contact and notify you in writing.

From there, your vehicle needs to go to an Authorised Volkswagen Dealership to be checked by our trained technicians. You can make a booking to have the vehicle reviewed by getting in touch with your local Volkswagen Authorised Dealer.
