Volkswagen is recalling 825 Touareg Hybrid SUVs with batteries that can get wet and catch on fire:
“VW determined water could enter without the rear hatch open because the sunroof drains and rear lid seals weren’t assembled correctly. Engineers say the hybrid battery tray is located in the rear hatch area … In the worst case, the electrical short could cause a fire.”
Buying a hybrid and generating your own heat source? That’s taking “going green” to a whole new level.
The recall was expected to begin at the end of February, 2016. If you haven’t received your notice or have questions, contact VW at 800-893-5298.
