2017 VW Amarok recalled for seat fault news

Fault with front seat wiring harness spurs Amarok recall.

A FAULT with the front seat wiring harness of the MY17 Volkswagen Amarok will send a total of 279 vehicles back to VW dealers.

“Due to a production fault, the front seat wiring harness may be damaged,” the ACCC recall report said. “If the front seat wiring harness is damaged, it may cause local heat damage or cause the front seat to move automatically.”

The Amaroks affected by the recall were sold nationally from October 1, 2016 to October 31, 2017. A full list of affected vehicles can be found here.

Owners of the affected dual-cabs will be contacted by Volkswagen, where they’ll be advised on reparation details which will be free of charge.

Owners can also contact the Volkswagen Recall Campaign Hotline on 1800 504 076 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am-8pm AEST).
