Volkswagen Canada is recalling a combined 5,585 vehicles from the VW and luxury Audi brand because of a problem with their brake systems.
The unspecified problem might cause gas bubbles to form in the brake fluid, according to a recall notice on Transport Canada’s website. The bubbles could cause “a soft brake pedal feel and a reduction in brake performance,” increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and damage.
The affected models include the VW Atlas, Beetle, Golf, Golf Wagon, GTI, Passat and Audi Q5. All the vehicles are from the 2018 model year.
A correction to the problem has not yet been determined.
