Volkswagen recalls Touran EcoFuel to service
- Affected production period September 2005 – Mai 2009
Replacement of front gas bottles
Volkswagen has issued a global recall for approx. 5,900 Touran EcoFuel vehicles from model years 2005 to 2009, of which approx. 3,800 are in Germany. The campaign will replace the front gas bottles at service centres as a precautionary measure. On some of these vehicles, the outer skin may possibly no longer provide the necessary corrosion protection due to damage caused by external influences. Fitting will be carried out at authorised Volkswagen service centres.
