Volkswagen is offering to buy a small number of vehicles in the United States as part of a new service campaign run by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). As part of the recall, 46 vehicles were affected.
According to the press service of the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), within the framework of the next service company, German crossovers VW Touareg, Tiguan, Golf and Atlas of 2018 release, electric e-Golf, Passat 2016-2017 and Passat CC of 2017 will be recalled as well as the high-performance Golf R from 2018 and 2019. A total of 46 cars will be purchased by the German automaker. The exact number of cars will be decided on the basis of the auditor’s report.
“These vehicles for internal use were sold without confirmation that they were built to all applicable regulatory requirements and may have been modified before being sold,” the safety agency said.
“As such, these vehicles may not meet the requirements of various federal vehicle safety standards.
The German automaker “cannot specifically identify a safety risk” and is unaware of accidents or injuries associated with this issue for which “there is no safety component”. As a result, “Volkswagen will offer to buy these vehicles” and “will not offer a cost recovery plan.”
The date of official notification of the dealer who sold the vehicle and the owner of this vehicle is set for July 2, when the recall is expected to begin. Owners of these vehicles will be contacted by mail and if they do not receive a response from VW or have additional questions on the topic, they can be contacted by phone.
