The market debut of the eighth generation Volkswagen Golf – one of the most important models for the German brand – was not very successful: in May of this year, during a planned quality check, a problem was found with the emergency call function.

The company promised to sort out the software situation by mid-June, and in fact, the corporation’s specialists dealt with the problem even earlier than planned. This was reported by the press service of the automaker

The built, but not yet sold cars will be updated very soon, but the concern will have to tinker with the models that customers have already received: according to the brand’s own estimation, in Germany alone it will be necessary to send 15 thousand copies to the service – since it is updated “by air », Like Tesla, Golf doesn’t.

The company has already informed the German government of the voluntary recall. Under EU law, all new cars that are certified after March 31, 2018, must have an eCall system. The rule applies to cars up to 8-seater and to light commercial vehicles.
