- Recall affects Passat, Touran and Caddy natural gas models
- Replacement of gas bottles required
Volkswagen issues workshop recall for natural gas models up to and including model year 2010
As a precautionary measure, Volkswagen is extending the recall of its natural gas models. Having already recalled the Touran models of years 2006 to 2009 on 6 July to have their gas bottles replaced, the company is now extending the recall to the Caddy, Passat and Touran models up to and including model year 2010. This is being done because there is no guarantee that regular inspection of the gas tanks (i.e. for any leaks or corrosion) is being performed in the individual EU countries.
