CBJ — German automaker Volkswagen must recall about 700,000 Tiguan and Touran cars worldwide due to a possible lighting defect.
The news was first reported in the German trade magazine Kfz-Betrieb.
The magazine reported that humidity can cause a short circuit at the panoramic roof’s light strip of the affected cars. A short circuit in the LED-module could cause scorching damage on the roof and possibly set the vehicle on fire, the magazine said, citing a company spokesperson.
Volkswagen is now working on a fix.
The number of vehicles affected here in Canada is unknown at this time.
