VW Caddy and Amaok owners to expect emissions recall letters
- Created: 09 October 2015
Do you own a Euro 5 compliant Caddy van from 2008 or an Amarok pick-up from 2011?
Well don't be shocked when you receive an emissions recall letter from Volkswagen as both the Caddy and Amarok vehicles have the defeat-device fitted for cheating emissions tests when the vehicle is in a test-environment. The defeat-device and associated software will require fixing at a local Volkswagen centre - an estimated 80,000 vans.
According to Volkswagen's UK Brand Director Karl Zu Dohna the VW Transporter and Crafter owners will not be expecting these recall letters as these models are not affected.
