Volkswagen Ireland recalls Up!, Polo, Tiguan, CC and Golf models

August 9, 2016

Volkswagen Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain models of the Up!, Polo, Tiguan, CC and Golf models. The manufacturing period extends from 25/11/2015 until 14/04/2016.

On vehicles with a manual child lock of a certain production period the lever of the child lock can break because it was damaged during the production process. As a result, an activated child lock can be unnoticeably switched off, especially in the case of strong jolts. The door can then be opened from the inside putting rear seat occupants at risk.

There are 2,112 affected vehicles on the Irish market.

What to do:

Volkswagen Ireland will be writing directly to those owners involved in the recall to arrange to have their vehicles checked. The letter will advise you to contact your nearest authorised Volkswagen Service Centre who will carry out the check and if needed the rectification, free of charge.

You can also contact Volkswagen Ireland directly on: 1850 812 761.
