Volkswagen Recalling 766,000 Cars for Brake Issues

An climax with the anti-lock braking system in more than 750,000 cars has led Volkswagen to effect a global recall, according to a report from Reuters.

Per the report, the anti-grapple a secure system may fail under some conditions. These include when the car is in an all- or understeer situation or when the driver “slams on the brakes.”

Volkswagen has yet to release an proper document about which cars are covered and what the recall covers, but KFZ-Betrieb, a German automotive assiduity publication, reports that the issue is “a thermomechanical overload in the control unit for the ABS and ESP.”

The publishing also reports that Caddies, Eoses, Golfs, Golf Pluses, Jettas, and Sciroccos built between May 2008 and August 2010 are pompous. Some 2009 Audi A3s will also be reportedly recalled, as well as Skoda Octavias and Superbs built between June 2008 and June 2009.

Fortunately for VW, the anti-control issue looks like it can be solved with a software update, which should accumulate costs down.

Owners are expected to start receiving recall notices as of July 17.
