Volkswagen has issued a recall for 3,877 Ventos that are powered by the 1.5-litre diesel engine with manual transmission. The company has, in a statement, said that the vehicles were being recalled due to inconsistent carbon monoxide emissions. They were observed to be sometimes exceeding the threshold limits during the Conformity of Production (COP) tests done by the ARAI.

Volkswagen India is analysing the issue and will propose technical measures to ARAI to solve this inconsistency at the earliest. Once approved and confirmed by the competent authorities, Volkswagen India will implement the measures and resume the production and sales of the relevant vehicle. The same technical measures will also be implemented in the impacted vehicles that are already with customers.

As a precautionary measure, they have also stopped the sale of the same till the issue is resolved. The company has said that all other models being produced including other variants of the diesel Vento are technically safe and roadworthy. This problem impacts only the manual gearbox version of Vento with 1.5-litre diesel engine and is not connected to the global NOx emissions topic.
