- Affects 1.5-litre Polo GT and Vento manual cars
- Manufacturing date from April 2015 to March 2017
- Recall also includes Jetta 1.4 TSI to replace O-rings in carbon canister
After the emissions issue with the Volkswagen group diesel cars, the German carmaker had announced a recall to update the engines to comply with the regulatory norms. While the earlier recall was in 2016, the new recall encompasses Volkswagen Vento and Polo GT cars which have the 108bhp diesel manual setup manufactured between April 2015 and March 2017.
The new recall aims to make necessary updates to the new set of engines. While the carmaker hasn’t commented on the exact issue that has led to the recall, since it is a software update, it might be pertaining to the emission levels.
On the other hand, the 1.4-litre TSI versions of the Jetta have been recalled to fix the O-rings of the carbon canister. The carbon canister absorbs fuel vapour and helps reduce the CO and HC levels in exhaust gases.
It seems like this is the final phase of recalls from Volkswagen and in case some cars have been left out, this is the right time to visit the nearest service centre.
