VW Recalls Over 57,000 Touareg Diesels From Around The World

Volkswagen will recall over 57,000 Touareg vehicles globally after Germany’s KBA automotive watchdog discovered that the 3.0-liter diesel engine used by the SUV has two illegal emissions control devices.

The recall affects Touaregs with the Euro 6 diesel engine, of which there are 57,600 vehicles globally. Reuters states that 25,800 of these are located in Germany.

In a statement, KBA confirmed the recall was ordered on December 8.

“Two inadmissible switch-off devices were found upon examination of the VW Touareg 3.0-litre diesel Euro 6 by the Federal Motor Vehicle Authority,” the watchdog confirmed.

KBA claims that the Touareg in question had an emissions-lowering program that was activated when the vehicle was examined on roller-beds under the new European driving cycle. Additionally, Touareg modes with selective catalytic reduction systems were found to illegally restrict the use of AdBlue.

In July, authorities in Germany announced a recall of 22,000 diesel-powered Porsche Cayenne models in Europe upon discovering similar emissions control devices.
