According to several news agencies, Volkswagen has announced that the company will be holding a free auto safety check to the Australian public over concerns related to mechanical problems linked to the VW’s vehicles.
After concerns were raised about the safety of some of the company’s vehicles, the company decided to do everything in their power to assure the public their vehicles are safe.
The reports indicate that concerns were raised after an accident involving a VW vehicle and a truck resulted in the death of a woman from Melbourne. According to the news, VW consumers are being encouraged to have their vehicles inspected at authorized dealers for free. The company claims this could offer drivers peace of mind to continue driving their vehicles.
Consumers with any concerns related to their VW vehicles can report any issue to the Transport Department for motor vehicle safety.
Some consumers are considering filing a class action lawsuit against the company but any official information regarding such measures was not released.
Whenever your vehicle is recalled, avoid postponing a visit to an authorized dealer to have the problem addressed before an accident occurs.
