The German manufacturer Volkswagen will collect approximately 700,000 cars from its Tiguan and Touran models with a panorama roof in its workshops. The problem is in the lighting that can lead to the ignition of the car, says Kfz-Betrieb, cited by Automedia.bg.
The service was launched on Monday, August 20 and only covered those two models and in versions of panoramic roofing equipment. The upper part of the vehicle appears to let moisture through, which can lead to a short circuit and fire.
Such cases have not yet been reported, but Volkswagen wants to insure and collect the cars in their repair shops. This is at the expense of the manufacturer.
In which markets are sold, the problematic Tiguan and Touran are not reported, but it is already known that 52,000 cars are in Germany.
Earlier this month it was clear that Focus2move was the leader in the first half of the year with the Volkswagen group, including Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, Seat, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Bentley and Porsche.
The company sold 5.59 million units, an increase of 7.2% in the first 6 months of 2017.
