Volkswagen (China) Import Co., Ltd., FAW-Volkswagen Automotive Co., Ltd. and SAIC Volkswagen Automotive Co., Ltd. made the decision to recall vehicles which are equipped with Takata airbag inflators (PSAN without desiccant).

Volkswagen Group China made the decision jointly with Volkswagen (China) Import Co., Ltd. (VGIC), FAW-Volkswagen Automotive Co., Ltd. (FAW-VW) and SAIC Volkswagen Automotive Co., Ltd. (SAIC VW) to recall vehicles which are equipped with Takata driver and / or passenger front airbag inflators (PSAN without desiccant). Volkswagen Group China has reported the recall plan to AQSIQ, covering a total of around 4.86 million vehicles, which were imported by VGIC, imported and produced by FAW-VW and produced by SAIC VW. The recall will start in 2018 and be carried out step by step. (Detailed recall plan please refer to following appendix)

After discussions with the Chinese authority, their conclusion is that the rupture of inflators as described above may occur in rare case when the affected airbag deployed, which may create a potential safety risk. Acting upon an advice from the Chinese safety authority, Volkswagen Group China therefore made this recall decision. As of now, Volkswagen Group has not received any report on our products worldwide regarding ruptured Takata front airbags. A comprehensive parts analysis program conducted so far, showed that the analyzed inflators on Volkswagen Group products worldwide are under normal condition.

Based on the recall plan, Volkswagen (China) Import Co., Ltd. (VGIC), FAW-Volkswagen Automotive Co., Ltd. (FAW-VW) and SAIC Volkswagen Automotive Co. Ltd. (SAIC VW) will provide free replacement of driver and / or passenger front airbags/inflators to related vehicles in different waves.
