|Headline||Alert: A12 / 01007/20 – VOLKSWAGEN GOLF VIII|
|Date||10 July 2020|
|Country of origin||Germany|
A software flaw causes the emergency call system – eCall – of the eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf to be activated without an accident having occurred beforehand to trigger the emergency call. As a result, and before possible false alarms, the system might not help the car’s occupants in the event of a real accident.
