    Volkswagen has issued a voluntary recall of 56,000 examples of the Mk8 Golf to fix software problems that have plagued the new model.

    Autocar is awaiting confirmation of the number of UK models affected by the “voluntary service measure”, which is effectively a non-mandatory recall. However, we know that it’s focused on examples of the Mk8 Golf built before July 2020 and fixes software issues affecting the infotainment system and reversing camera.

    Can they not just ask the owners to turn them off and on again?

    That’s what happens when you rush a new model out despite the software not being ready… which is exactly what VW did as regards the new Golf.

    I think I lucked out getting the mk 7.5!

    Subjective I know – but the mk.7.5 is much better looking anyway!
