Volkswagen has upset a number of Chinese consumers, as the German carmaker said it would not recall vehicles with problems in the DSG, a type of transmission technology used by the company, in the Chinese market, but recalled the problematic sets in the markets outside of China.

On March 29, AQSIQ contacted the German carmaker urging it to provide effective solutions as early as possible. The watchdog reiterated it will require Volkswagen to recall the products if the DSG is confirmed flawed.

China is Volkswagen’s largest market, with passenger cars sold under the brand totaled 818,800 in China (including Hong Kong) in the first two months of this year, up 8 percent year-on-year.

  1. Just bought a new VW magotan, worried I will have a duff gear box. Hopefully the chinese govt. will put the boots to the VW/FAW JV and make them individually inspect all VW cars with issues or force a recall.
