Volkswagen recalls new Polo due to rear seatbelt lock issue

Volkswagen recalls new Polo due to rear seatbelt lock issue

- The car has been recalled to fix the issue with the left rear seat belt lock that could be unintentionally released

- VW has advised not use the middle seat of the new Polo until the car is fixed with the redesigned lock fixture 

- The recall involves the all-new generation Polo sold overseas and not the one that we have here in India 

Volkswagen has confirmed a technical issue on the new 2018 Polo. However, we would like to add that this is the all-new generation of the Polo sold overseas and the not the old version that’s sold here in India. 

According to the German carmaker, there is a possibility that in situations where there are sudden quick lane changes with five passengers on board and when the rear center seat and the rear left seat are occupied at the same time, the left seat belt lock could be unintentionally released. 

Volkswagen has identified a technical solution: a redesigned belt lock fixture, which will prevent this from happening. Although the car is deemed safe to drive, the brand has advised its customers not to use the middle seat of the new Polo until the car is equipped with the redesigned belt lock fixture. 

Volkswagen will soon start a recall campaign in Europe wherein the affected cars will be fitted with a redesigned belt lock fixture.
