MOSCOW, April 18. /TASS/. Volkswagen Group Rus (Russian Volkswagen dealer) will recall over 44,000 Touareg sport utility vehicles sold in Russia from 2010 to 2016, the Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology (Rosstandart) said on Monday.
"The probability of lock ring loosening on the pedal gear mounting bracket of recalled automobiles served as the cause of recall," the regulator said.
Lock rings will be checked for correct installation and replaced if necessary at all vehicles within the recalling campaign framework. All the repair activities will be performed free of charge for owners, the regulator reports.
