 Models affected include Golf GTI, Eos, Passat CC, Polo and Vento manufactured from 2010-2013
 Beetle models manufactured between 2012 to 2014 are also affected
 Customers urged to make an immediate appointment with a Volkswagen dealer
 Faulty airbag gas generator housing identified as root cause

Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) announced a recall on models produced between 2010 and 2014. A total of 6,671 vehicles have been identified to undergo inspection under the recall.

The affected models are the sixth generation Golf GTI, Eos, Passat CC, Polo, Beetle and Vento, which are equipped with a specific driver front airbag gas generator housing.

The concern with the front driver airbag housing generator is caused by deterioration of the generator’s propellant due to high air humidity and temperature fluctuations over a long period of time.

This could lead to potential injury on the driver and passenger. VPCM has taken the necessary steps with its dealer partners to ensure parts availability and that the recall is conducted smoothly and efficiently, and the nationwide recall will be carried out in phases to manage the number of cases.

All notifications to identified owners, based on the Volkswagen database will be conducted by email and WhatsApp, and customers who purchased the vehicle from a previous owner or a used car dealership are advised to urgently contact the nearest Volkswagen authorised
dealer for verification.

Should parts replacement be required in the event of parts replacement, all labour and replacement parts for this service will be at no cost to owners.
