The recently-launched 2016 Skoda Superb, its small Yeti stablemate and the current-generation Volkswagen Tiguan have been recalled in Australia this week.
The Superb’s recall centres on a fault with the sunroof, while the Yeti and Tiguan have both been called in over an airbag issue.
In the recall notice, Skoda reports that the specified limits of the sunroof’s roll-back function may be exceeded when being operated remotely.
When closing the sunroof using the remote key, the sunroof may not recognise any obstacles obstructing its path, and could therefore crush anything that may be caught in the sunroof, people’s limbs for example.
Affected owners will be contacted by mail, and can also contact their local Skoda service centre or contact Skoda customer care on 1800 504 076.
The German manufacturer reports that if the airbags deploy abnormally there is a risk of injury to occupants.
Owners of the affected Tiguan and Yeti models will be contacted by mail. Customers can contact their local Volkswagen service centre or Volkswagen customer care on 1800 504 076.
