A recall has been issued for 3877 diesel manual Volkswagen Ventos. The German automaker, in a statement, has said that the vehicles were being recalled due to inconsistent carbon monoxide emissions. They were observed to be sometimes exceeding the threshold limits during the Conformity of Production (COP) tests done by the ARAI.
Volkswagen India is analysing the issue and will propose technical measures to ARAI to solve this inconsistency at the earliest. Once approved and confirmed by the competent authorities. It will implement the measures and resume the production and sales of the relevant vehicle. The same will also be implemented in the impacted vehicles that are already with customers.
The company has said that all other models being produced including other variants of the diesel Vento are technically safe and roadworthy. This problem impacts only the manual gearbox version of the Vento with 1.5-litre diesel engine and is not connected to the global NOx emissions.
