Court Overturns VW Recall Order


News: A Brazilian court in Rio Grande do Sul has over-ruled an order by a judge to recall up to 400,000 Volkswagen (VW) cars over an unusual engine noise. The judge claimed that the recall could permanently damage the company's image and could hurt the automobile sector. A judge on January 11 ordered VW to recall the 2009-2010 models equipped with the affected engines, claiming that the cars could wear prematurely and generate additional costs for customers. Meanwhile, VW is providing free oil checks and changes for the affected cars along with extending the guarantee on the engines.
