An issue with the car's sunroof has called almost 10,000 mid-sized SUVs back to the dealership.
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.
Volkswagen will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealership.
