There is a possible defect in the airbag control unit (ACU). This may affect the correct functioning of this safety element, as well as the seat belt tensioners, which increases the risk of injury in the event of an accident in the vehicle.
Due to improper programming of the module that is responsible for controlling the correct operation of the engine, the ignition coil may store energy after the engine is turned off for longer than the set time. If it does so for a long time, its internal temperature may increase, which in turn could cause a short circuit, increasing the risk of electric shock and fire.
The affected units of these cars, initially used for internal Volkswagen AG purposes, may not have been properly modified before being sold to the general public. There is therefore a possibility that certain safety systems of these vehicles may not have been correctly adapted for street use.
The stop switch that controls the operation of the automatic transmission selector may not function properly. As a result, it may not prevent the gearbox from shifting from ‘P’ – which is the parking position, the one usually inserted when the car is parked – to ‘R’ – the one selected to perform some kind of reverse maneuver – when the brake pedal is not pressed, which increases the risk of an accident, as the model could shift and hit something or someone.
Due to an error in the software that controls the Forward Collision Assist (FCA), the brake assist function may fail when the vehicle approaches a parked vehicle or a pedestrian. As a result, the brake assist may not activate during a frontal collision, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.
During repeated acceleration / deceleration, the emission control system in the diesel Engine Control Unit (ECU) cannot prevent sulfur accumulation inside the catalyst due to the lack of robustness of the engine control software. This reduces the nitrogen oxides (NOx) purification performance. Therefore, it does not meet the regulatory requirement for emission level.
Due to the incompatibility of the control software with the heating film used for the front camera on the windshield, significant overheating can occur when the heating element is controlled after ignition or at low temperatures. This can cause slow combustion and increase the risk of vehicle fire.
In vehicles manufactured in a limited period, the emergency call module control unit and the communication unit have been installed with incorrect software. As a result, there is a risk that the e-Call system will not function correctly.

Country of origin
The electrohydraulic control unit (EHCU) software may respond incorrectly to a faulty rear wheel speed signal by activating one of the rear brakes. Unintentional brake activation can increase the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.
