2020 Volkswagen Touareg recalled for leak that could damage transmission

Volkswagen Australia has issued a recall of 72 examples of its 2020 Touareg SUV due to a transmission leak that could result in damage. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says an oil pipe fitted to the transmission may have been welded incorrectly, which can result in a leak. If left unattended, the transmission can lose “several litres” of fluid, which could lead to damage of the unit.

McLaren confirms 186 Australian cars involved in global recall

British supercar maker McLaren has confirmed 186 Australian cars are included in a global recall issued in April for a fire hazard. The 186 McLaren cars span 2017-2020 model year 720S coupe and spider, Senna, 570GT and GT models sold between 31 August 2016 and 29 March 2020. Included cars are susceptible to an increased risk of fire due to a noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) pad fitted to the fuel tank that can trap moisture, eventually leading to corrosion and leakage from the tank.
