    Post 2015-16 Volkswagen Tiguan, Passat CC recalled

    Volkswagen Australia has recalled the 2015-16 Tiguan and 2015 Passat CC, over concerns about the condenser in their airbag control unit.According to the company, there's a risk the cars have a faulty airbag condenser. If a faulty condenser is fitted the airbag could deactivate, or the airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners could inadvertently fire, as the car interprets the faulty part as a signal there's been a crash.Both these cases increase the risk of injury or accident.A total of 1765 vehicles are included in the recall a VIN list is attached here.Volkswagen will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealer.MORE: Volkswagen Tiguan news, reviews, comparisons and videosMORE: Volkswagen Passat CC news, reviews, comparisons and videosMORE: Recalls
