Due to the temporary delay of the delivery of the Golf 8 we’d like to inform you about the latest information status: “In the course of internal investigations, we have determined that individual Golf 8 vehicles may experience unreliable data transmission from the software on the control unit of the online connectivity unit (OCU3). As a result, the full functionality of the eCall / emergency call assistant cannot be guaranteed. According to the EU regulation, new models must have an appropriate emergency call device since March 31, 2018. We have therefore responded to ensure full compliance with this regulation. Accordingly, Volkswagen immediately stopped delivering the Golf 8. In an exchange with the responsible authorities, we review the further procedure for the affected vehicles - in particular, a decision regarding a recall and a remedial action via software update by the Federal Motor Transport Authority in Germany (KBA) is pending in the next few days.”
