Today Volkswagen sent out notice to dealer to stop the sale of approximately 800 of its GTI hatchback and new Golf in the U.S. and Canada for a mistake in assembly that could cause problems with the steering. According to a stop sale order that was sent out to dealers today from Volkswagen the front stabilizer links were installed with too little torque.
According to notice over time the stabilizer links can come loose and make “considerable noise”. If the links were to detach completely the car would become more difficult to steer and could lead to a crash.
The total number of cars affected in the U.S. is 2,001 and 108 in Canada. No customers have reported any problems.
