Volkswagen has recently announced the sales stop of the new 2015 Golf and 2015 Golf GTI because of a problem with the vehicles’ steering.
The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently discovered some problems with the front stabilizer link fasteners and it will notify the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to issue a recall soon.
“Volkswagen is stopping the sale of approximately 700 Golf and Golf GTI vehicles from model year 2015 due to the potential for the front stabilizer link fasteners to work loose. To fix the issue, VW will replace the front stabilizer links, at no charge. No fires, accidents or injuries have been reported. We have asked our dealers to immediately stop the sale of affected vehicles. We will officially notify NHTSA and will be in contact with customers impacted by this issue”, said the carmaker in its official press release.
According to the car manufacturer, owners of the affected 2015 VW Golf and Golf GTI units should be aware of this problem and wait for a notification letter which will program a “meeting” with a local car dealership which will be inspecting the vehicles and make the necessary repairs / replacements free of charge. More details on the subject will probably be announced by the NHTSA when the recall will be made public.
