Volkswagen India starts recall process following ARAI approval

After waiting for 9 months, Volkswagen India would finally begin the recall procedure under a month. Nearly six months behind schedule, as Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) has approved its first set of plan to fix emission offense. Volkswagen revealed the biggest ever recall in India in December in 2015 following a directive from the department of heavy markets.

The customers will soon be called directly through their particular brand representatives, or their dealerships, regarding when they must check out the workshop for the needed technical updates.

The company will begin recalling vehicles with the older generation Skoda Superb being first to be fixed. However, the production of the previous generation of the Superb was stopped last year, the car has ended up being the first to be recalled mostly due to the fact that it is operating on the doubtful 2.0-litre EA 189 diesel motor.

After the exposure of Dieselgate scandal, last December, Volkswagen India revealed the recall of 323,700 vehicles throughout 3 brands– Volkswagen, Skoda and Audi– for India. Internationally the automaker had to recall 11 million vehicles.
