The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently announced a recall for the DSG-equipped cars in China because of some problems with their transmissions.
According to the car manufacturer, this new recall will affect a total of 384, 181 Volkswagen cars in China, all of them equipped with a DSG automatic transmission, because of some problems with the gearboxes. Volkswagen says that owners of the DSG-equipped vehicles in China will have to take a trip back to the dealers because the transmissions might cause the cars to slow down or to speed up unintentionally, increasing the risk of a crash and / or injury.
The new Volkswagen recall includes models like the Golf, Passat, Touran, Bora, Scirocco, Sagitar and more. The Audi A3 cars, made between February 2010 and June 2011, along with some Skoda Octavias produced after 2008, will also be affected by this recall. Owners will be contacted by Volkswagen and the recall is expected to begin soon. This is quite a hit for the German carmaker considering the fact the VW is the best-selling foreign marquee in China. It is unknown for the moment whether this recall will be expanded to other markets.
