Volkswagen India recalls 389 units of the Polo over handbrake mechanism issue

A day after putting a temporary hold on deliveries of the Polo, Volkswagen India has now announced that the brand is recalling 389 units of the premium hatchback. The company has announced that it’s recalling cars from a single batch of production from the month of September 2015 over a handbrake mechanism issue. 

The Quality Assurance department of Volkswagen India has determined that under certain conditions, the handbrake mechanism would lose effectiveness. Furthermore, the analysis performed by the carmaker has shown that a batch of handbrake cable retention levers in the rear brake liner might break under certain conditions.

Volkswagen says they have already identified the cars and that the brand has started contacting customers of the affected lot of cars. Furthermore, the repair work at the specified workshops will be carried out at no cost to the customer. The deliveries of the Polos identified in stock which had been put on hold yesterday will be resumed as and when the preventive repair of each car is completed.
