The latest update to these recalls are to do with the Volkswagen Polo in the UK that have that smaller 1.2 TDI engine. And, while no number has been given in total for the entire recall that is to include the likes of SEAT and Skoda, we are told that 8,018 Polo vehicles are affected in the UK.

There is to also be another recall with the EA189 engine, but this will be for the slightly larger 1.6 TDI.

Once Volkswagen has got things in place they will contact affected owners, where they will then need to take their vehicle in for repair, which is said to take from half hour to an hour.
