    Post 2015-18 Volkswagen Tiguan, Tiguan Allspace recalled

    Volkswagen has recalled the 2015-2018 Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace, over concerns about an issue with the LED module for the sunroof backlight.According to the company, heating of the module could cause a short-circuit because of 'humidity ingress' into the LED module. If the problem occurs, the backlight may stop working, and passengers might notice a burning smell in the cabin.Although it doesn't label the issue a high fire risk, Volkswagen says "under unfavourable conditions" there is a risk of fire.A total of 8879 Tiguan models and 907 Tiguan Allspace models are included in the recall. VIN lists are attached here and here respectively.Volkswagen will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealership.MORE: Volkswagen Tiguan news, reviews, comparisons and videosMORE: Recalls
