Published 11 October 2015

Volkswagen has today announced an 'action plan' to recall cars affected by the recent emissions scandal. 

Affected owners are set to be informed if their car - so far resticited to cars powered by an EA189 diesel engine - is affected by the issue. The firm reiterates at all cars are technically safe and roadworthy. The cars have a 1.6-litre or a 2.0-litre EU5 diesel engine produced from 2009.

EA111 Volkswagen Polo 1.2 TDI, SEAT Ibiza 1.2 TDI and Skoda Fabia 1.2 TDI models are also affected.  

The plan then calls for Volkswagen and the other Group brands to present the technical solutions and measures to the responsible authorities in October. Volkswagen will also launch a dedicated website to keep owners updated as to the progress of the recall.
