It’s the latest recall for car makers Voltswagon, with over 60,000 vehicles being recalled in Australia.

Certain models built from 2009-2015 are being recalled over DSG transmission issues. The issue relates to cars with a dual-clutch transmission and it could lead to the car stopping and being unable to restart. Voltswagon recall

As per the ACCC website:

“Due to a production fault, over time a crack in the transmissions pressure accumulator can occur.”

“If the pressure accumulator cracks, oil and pressure is lost in the hydraulic system of the gearbox. As a result, the transmission of engine power via the gearbox is interrupted. The experience of this symptom would be comparable to depressing the clutch in a vehicle fitted with a manual transmission. This could increase the likelihood of an accident affecting the occupants of the vehicle and other road users.”

Those who own affected vehicles can contact the Volstwagon hotline  – 1800 504 076.

  • Very scary how many products are faulty and especially for big ticket items which can cost lives. I had a VW which pre dates this with only one other owner aside from a family member and it would stop without notice. No one could ever advise the issue. Extremely dangerous and parts and service was so expensive. Sad that Australian manufacturing is a thing of the past.
