SEOUL, March 28 (Yonhap) -- Audi-Volkswagen Group Korea will voluntarily recall 4,789 vehicles to repair faulty components, the government here said Thursday.
This is the latest in a series of recall plans for foreign carmakers and importers of foreign vehicles, according to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.
The German automakers plans to recall four kinds of models, the ministry said in a statement.
The problems are a faulty power system in assistant heating equipment in the 2.0-liter A6 35 TDI sedan and low-quality components and software programs in the Passat 2.0 TDI sedan, the Tiguan 2.0 TDI and the Tiguan 2.0 BMT SUVs, the statement said.
Starting Friday, vehicle owners can visit designated repair and service centers to replace the parts free of charge, it said.
