VW Recalls 252 Vehicles, 233 To Be Bought Back
Volkswagen says it can't guarantee 233 vehicles can be repaired, so they will be repurchased.

— Volkswagen is recalling 252 of the following vehicles, with 233 of the vehicles needing to be bought back because they can't be repaired.

  • 2012-2016 Volkswagen Eos
  • 2012 Volkswagen Passat
  • 2012-2016 Volkswagen CC
  • 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf
  • 2011-2015 Volkswagen  Touareg
  • 2012-2015 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • 2011-2016 Volkswagen Golf
  • 2011-2013 Volkswagen GTI

VW says the vehicles were sold as used after they were no longer needed for company use, but documentation about any possible modifications is incomplete. In short, Volkswagen says it cannot verify the vehicles comply with regulatory requirements.

The automaker says 233 of the vehicles won't be able to be repaired with parts or software updates and therefore will need to be repurchased from customers. The remaining vehicles will be repaired by dealers when the recall begins July 13, 2018.

Owners may contact Volkswagen at 800-893-5298.
