Volkswagen recalls 600,000 vans over defect
(02-27 19:13)

Germany’s Volkswagen said is recalling nearly 600,000 Caddy vans worldwide owing to a tailgate defect.
The recall affects 589,000 small delivery vans built between November 2003 and January 2013, including 284,000 in Germany, VW said in a statement.
The problem can cause an open tailgate to snap shut.
The news comes just three months after Volkswagen had to recall more than 2.6 million cars, about a third of them in China, to fix various problems, including faults with its headlights on the Tiguan and engine problems in the Amarok models.—AFP
