Volkswagen Recalls 766,000 Cars Globally for Brake Issue

  Volkswagen Recalls 766,000 Cars Globally for Brake Issue Volkswagen is issuing a global recall for 766,000 cars due to an issue with anti-lock brakes, according to Reuters. Under some conditions, such as "when the driver over-steers, under-steers or slams on the brakes," the anti-lock brake system may fail. The issue can be fixed with a software update. Reuters reported Saturday that 385,000 VWs, Audis, and Skodas were being recalled in Germany. Now just five days later, 381,000 more cars globally have been added to the recall. No official details have been released yet by Volkswagen as to what cars are covered and what exactly this recall is for. The German automotive industry publication KFZ-Betrieb reports that the issue with the brakes "is a thermomechanical overload in the control unit for the ABS and ESP." Between two reports in KFZ-Betrieb, the cars affected are Caddy, Eos, Golf, Golf Plus, Jetta, and Scirocco from May 2008 to August 2010 and Skoda Octavias and Superbs from June 2008 to June 2009. Some 2009 Audi A3s will be recalled as well. According to Blich.ch, owners of the affected cars will start to be notified on July 17. Thankfully for Volkswagen, this issues looks like it can be fixed with a simple software update, which will be significantly cheaper than the Dieselgate recall. But any money spent on recalls is something Volkswagen does not need at this point. The automaker and all of its brands were just starting to turn profits again after the huge losses related to the diesel recall and buy-back program.

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta has been teased ahead of its official debut at the 2018 Detroit auto show via exterior and interior sketches. From the outside, Volkswagen's new sedan looks more mature and restrained with cues from the Arteon--especially in the new front fascia and grille. Its side profile is familiar and more upright, eschewing the swoopy silhouette that rivals like the Mazda3 and Honda Civic have embraced--though the roofline does appear sportier in the rear. Out back, the restrained design continues, hinting again at the 2019 Jetta's more mature exterior design direction.

So no matter how many times the vehicle changes hands in those six years, the warranty goes with it. Just as it does for Atlas and Tiguan, the warranty covers all powertrain and drivetrain components, including the engine, transmission, and 4Motion all-wheel drive system, when equipped. The new warranty replaces the 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty Volkswagen previously offered.

Perhaps the most notable sketch is the interior because it shows some key features that could possibly be available on the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. The dash in particular has a look that's reminiscent of the Alfa Romeo Giulia's dash and features a large screen integrated into it as the center piece. Unlike some of its rivals, the Jetta doesn't go with a floating screen that looks like a tablet, giving the dash a more traditional appearance. Volkswagen's digital cockpit also appears to be featured in this sketch because there doesn't seem to be a traditional rev counter and speedometer in the gauge cluster. The rest of the center stack appears to have a straightforward design as well, as it appears that the 2019 Jetta will stick with a combination of buttons and knobs for its infotainment controls, in addition to the touchscreen.

The shots don't show very much, but the tartan-pattern fabric on the seats suggest the SUV takes a little inspiration from the GTI by using the iconic hot hatch's style of upholstery.

When it goes on sale sometime in 2018, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will be the latest vehicle to move to the automaker's MQB platform that also underpins the Golf, Atlas, Tiguan, and Audi's A3 and TT. Expect it to feature a turbocharged four-cylinder engine as standard paired to either a manual or automatic transmission. The sporty Jetta GLI could appear later in the lineup and should feature more power and a sportier suspension setup than the standard car.
