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.”

  • Is there a huge spelling error here? When I saw the headline, I thought is Voltswagon a spelling error or new kind of vehicle. Then I read the article and I’m pretty sure Voltswagon should probably be Volkswagon. Lol

  • I wonder how many cars have already been “rear ended”. it’s possible that the tail lights might not have shown either. So glad it’s not the throttle stuck wide open. The brakes don’t respond and you could cause many injuries or worse. Also you could damage a lot of motor vehicles and possibly buildings too. I know somebody who witnessed that happen with disastrous outcome.
