Volkswagen Announces DSG Recall in Japan
According to Automotive News, a company spokesman said that the gearbox problems are caused by the hot and wet climate typical of some Asian cities, as well as the pollution and stop-and-go traffic.
The Japanese roundup comes just two month after Volkswagen said it will recall almost 400,000 vehicles in China due to similar DSG transmission issues on several of their vehicles, including the Golf, Scirocco, Passat, Audi A3, or the Skoda Octavia.
A similar recall for almost 6,200 cars was announced earlier this month in Singapore, with Volkswagen claiming that the defective gearboxes could cause slight power losses.
