The manufacturer Volkswagen will recall 700,000 vehicles SUV Tiguan and Touran worldwide due to faulty equipment on the roof that might ignite , said Monday the German group. This massive recall concerns vehicles manufactured until July 5, 2018, or 52,000 vehicles in Germany, said a spokesman at the agency dpa.
Risk of short circuit
A light bar installed on the panoramic roof of these two models is likely to hang moisture, thus triggering a short circuit, had previously reported the newspaper Kfz Betrieb. Volkswagen is trying to find a solution to this problem, which can “soon” be offered in the workshop to the owners of these vehicles.
The group also announced at the end of July to consider the recall of 124,000 electric cars due to the use of cadmium, a carcinogenic metal, in the batteries of its Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche brand vehicles.
