Worldwide Audi, Skoda and V W Recall 766,000 cars because the ABS can fail. In Germany, 385,000 cars are affected, most of them VW. This affects 288,000 Caddies, Eos, Golf, Golf Plus, Jetta and Scirocco that were built between 2008 and 2010. In the case of the Golf, this is the Golf VI, for example. According to VW, 'this can lead to a faulty earth connection and, as a result, an interruption in the flow of current to components in the control unit.' The reason is a thermomechanical overload in the ABS control unit
01/27/2016 - Volkswagen is recalling around 20,800 Caddy vehicles to workshops in Germany. With the model from the construction period May 2012 to June 2013, the engine can start when the remote control is operated.
A spokesman for the group confirmed this to auto motor und sport. 67,000 VW Caddies are affected worldwide, it continues. On the models, the ground screw connection for the on-board power supply control unit is incorrect.
This means that, according to VW, “the relay for the ignition” can be controlled. As a precaution, VW has warned its customers not to park their vehicle with the gear engaged. The defect was discovered due to customer complaints - personal injury is not known.
