Volkswagen will notify the owners of these cars affected. There will be several phases due to the large volume of vehicles in this call to review. As on other occasions, the repair will take place in dealerships and technical services officers. In theory will only be needed about 30 minutes, since this is a software update and of course it will be free for all users.
These changes will not affect the vehicle-level fuel consumption, performance or sound of the engine.Until now, the KBA has approved the repair of up to 2.5 million vehicles affected. It is a slow process, since it is still missing many more. The engine 2.0 TDI was one of the most affected, but later also will review the 1.2 TDI, whose calls to review have been delayed a while.
