The recall notice advises that the laser welded seam on the front seat backrests may not have been correctly configured during production, which may impact on the strength of the welded connection.

This could potentially lead to injuries sustained by the vehicle occupants in the event of a serious rear collision.

Affected Volkswagen Tiguan owners will be contacted by mail and asked to contact their nearest Volkswagen Dealer to arrange for inspection and repair.
