Volkswagen’s Touareg SUV has joined its Porsche Cayenne cousin with a recall surrounding the brake pedal.
Like the Cayenne, Volkswagen has identified a weakness with a circlip on the bearing bracket for the pedals, which could work its way loose.
Should this occur, braking performance could be compromised, causing a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road-users.
Targeted Touareg models were built between 2011 and this year, with around 10,100 examples affected in Australia. A total of 6,168 Cayennes are also affected.
The carmaker recently recalled its Passat Wagon in Australia, due to a potential problem with the electric sunroof.
Volkswagen 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.
