Skoda recalls Superb diesel

Skoda recalls Superb diesel

Skoda has started with the software update for the EA189 beginning with the Skoda Superb as per the announcement by Volkswagen group last year. The EA189 diesel engine was embroiled in a huge controversy for using a defeat programme in its software to mask its real emission levels.

Skoda has said that there are no safety or driveability concerns and the software update for the Superb cars will be done free of cost. The software update will be done in a phased manner across the country and Skoda owners will be sent an invitation to book an appointment with the nearest dealer for the update. Skoda owners can also use this link to find out if and when their car needs to go for the update.

The Volkswagen group has begun dealing with the EA189 which has been put to use in a bunch of cars including Skoda Laura, Volkswagen Passat, Volkswagen Jetta, Audi A3, A4, A6, A3 and Q5 which means we can expect a recall for these cars as well in future. With the 1.2-litre, the 1.5-litre and the 1.6-litre mills also being affected, it is very complicated to systematically issue a recall and hence the delay after the VW group announcement back in Decemnber 2015.
