The Volkswagen Group has recalled two of its SUVs this week, due to a potential problem with the side airbags.

Both the Volkswagen Tiguan and Skoda Yeti are on the list, as the airbags in each may not deploy as intended during a collision.

The carmaker says that an abnormally-inflated side airbag following a collision could increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

However, only a handful of customers are affected by the recall, with just eight Yetis and three Tiguans on the list.

Customers should note that this airbag recall is not related to the ongoing Takata airbag recall.

Also on the recall list this month for Volkswagen and Skoda are the Passat Wagon and Superb Wagon respectively.

A problem with the electronically-operated sunroof in each has been identified, which could see the roof exceed the governed ‘closed’ position when operated with the remote key.

Volkswagen and Skoda will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer or call Volkswagen Customer Care on 1800 504 076.
