What are the hazards?

If the defect occurs, the boot lid can drop down unexpectedly and may pose an injury risk.

What should consumers do?

A letter is being sent to affected owners of the vehicles. For further information, customers can contact their local Volkswagen Authorised Service Centre or contact Volkswagen Customer care on 1800 607 822.
