VW announces further recalls

Volkswagen Group is recalling nearly 600,000 vehicles in China for safety reasons.

Its joint venture, FAW-Volkswagen Automobile, will recall 577,590 Golf and Sagitar cars because of a headlight fuse defect that may lead to safety risks.

The recall covers 416,364 Golfs produced between September 2009 and May 2014, and 161,226 Sagitars produced between July 2010 and March 2012.

This is according to China’s quality watchdog, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine. The watchdog said the defects could cause headlight failure.

In March, Volkswagen recalled over 1 million Audi vehicles due to potential leaks and coolant pumps faults.
