The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently announced a recall for the Caddy models, which will affect almost 600,000 units, because of some tailgate problems which have been recorded.

According to the car manufacturer, a total of 589,000 units of the Volkswagen Caddy will be affected by this recall, worldwide, and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the tailgate fixed. From the affected Volkswagen Caddy vehicles, a total of 284,000 units are currently found in Germany, so owners of them will not be glad to find out that they will have to be careful around the tailgates of their models.

Volkswagen says that the tailgate of the affected Caddy models has a condition which may cause it to snap shut, when opened, the gas pressure shock absorbers which are attached to the tailgate may get dislodged in some models and this can increase the risk of an injury. The affected Volkswagen Caddy vehicles have been produced between November 2003 and January 2013, so if you own such a model, you should probably contact your local Volkswagen dealership, in order to find out more.
