Volkswagen T-Cross recalled

Volkswagen is recalling 593 examples of its T-Cross light SUV as the seatbelt warning mightn't be working properly.


The 2020-21 Volkswagen T-Cross is being recalled due to a fault with its seatbelt warning.

“The seatbelt warning (acoustic warning tone and visual display) may occasionally operate rather than continuously, in circumstances such as a seatbelt not fastened or unfastened while the vehicle is moving,” the company says in its recall notice.

“If the warning does not sound continuously, a seatbelt may be unbuckled without the driver being informed.

“If the warning does not sound continuously there is the possibility that a seat belt may be unbuckled without the driver being sufficiently informed. In the event of an accident this may result in injury or death to an unrestrained occupant.”

If you own an affected vehicle, you’ll need to schedule an appointment at a Volkswagen dealership for a free inspection and repair.

If you have any further questions, you can contact Volkswagen on 1800 504 076.
