Looks like Volkswagen is having a really tough time with its products. Once revered as one of the best vehicle brands across the world, the German manufacturer is facing the music, first with its global emission scandal and now in India too. Elucidating further, VW India is in the process of recalling 3,877 models of the Vento 1.5-litre diesel models that specifically have a manual gearbox. The reason being that COP (Conformity of Production) tests done by ARAI have resulted in the model emitting carbon monoxide over the permitted limit. This has led to VW India temporarily halting the sales of the Vento variant in question. The company has said in its official statement that it is looking into the matter and has kept it a priority and will soon come out with technical measures to counter the same. Once the measures are approved by the relevant authorities, VW India will implement the same in the recalled vehicles and rectify the problems in the assembly line as well. Till then, the sales of the Vento 1.5-litre diesel MT model will be on hold.

VW has also said that the sales of the 1.5-litre diesel with the DSG unit on both the Vento and the Polo and other variants of these two cars which make use of the same engine are untouched by the problem and will be continued to be available for purchase. VW India has gone on record to say that the problem is limited to only the single model in India and in no way, is related to the global emissions problem that drew so much flak for VW internationally. The company has also said that all VW models on sale in India are technically safe and roadworthy in every aspect. We are hoping that VW comes out of these emission issues at the earliest.
