Major recall affecting March deliveries Diesel Engines - VW group

Post by davidpacey » Wed Mar 04, 2020 2:29 pm

Just been called by my dealer about my Tiguan delivery due Monday 9th March. Apparently VW have issued instructions not to register 8,000+ vehicles due to a suspected fuel system/ fuel line fault on vehicles across the group (VW, Audi etc). Have called VW customer services to validate. They couldn’t provide a timeline as the recall/ advice is still just being given!

Dealer hopes this is going to be resolved in the next few days, but I suspect more members with March deliveries are going to be impacted. Causes a bit of an issue as my old Tiguan R-line is being collected off lease by BCA on Monday too!

Yep made my way down to my local VW dealer to collect my MY20 R-Line Tech today (04/03/20) and the dealer couldn't / wouldn't release the car to me which is a bummer seeing as i'm now car less until further notice.

Did anyone get any indication as to what the recall was about?

Issues with the fuel lines affecting Diesel cars only. They won't register them until the issue is resolved.
I'm at a complete loose end now once Toby gets collected on Monday. BCA can't change the collection slot as they have literally zero capacity .

They'd better sort this quick to avoid lumping buyers with the VED increase coming in in April. For my 2.0TDi 150 4motion it would mean an extra £210 in the first year
Not out of my pocket it aint

Yep I’m in this club too.

Was booked in for midday collection but got a call about 10ish about this.

I’m current GTD has private plates which have already started the process of going back on retention so in the next 3 days my dealer is either going give me loan car till the fix or I might be able to keep mine with normal plates on till the fix.

The reason I’m saying this though is, will your supplying dealer not give you a courtesy until the fix?

Hopefully I’ll know more tomoz when my dealer calls.

Same goes for everyone else who’s in the same boat - can your dealer not supply a courtesy?

Had a an email from my dealer saying VW ALL deliveries stopped.Waiting for a phone call as to why but I now see the explanation.
My car has also gone back to Lex Leasing.
I might re-consider a MerecedesGLC. Its a bit big but there are some excellent lease deals about with delivery. However I really like the Tiguan (RLine 150TDI Auto) and I have a very good deal.

Would this also mean that production is stopped or delayed for the diesel models? My 1.5Tsi is planned for production next week... Can this have a positive or negative effect on the lead time of my car?
