VW recalls 766,000 cars for faulty brake system

• Nigeria not affected – VW Centre

Volkwagen is recalling 766,000 vehicles of its core passenger car brand worldwide for a software update to their braking control systems. This is because the braking control system may not function properly in certain driving conditions, such as when the driver over-steers, under-steers or slams on the brakes.

The car maker is recalling 288,000 VW-brand cars in Germany over the issue with the withdrawn brands including the Audi and Skoda brands. The German recall impacts about 385,000 cars.

Meanwhile, Volkswagen representatives in Nigeria, Volkswagen Centre, has said that none of the affected models were sold in Nigeria. According to a Volkswagen Centre source, “Nigeria was not affected in the recall as the company has not imported any Volkswagen product in the last one year. 

We have not imported any Volkswagen model in the last one year or during the period covered by the recall,” The source told Vanguard Motoring that if any of the models were brought into the country, they would have done the needful as a responsible organisation.
