Volkswagen is preparing a recall service in the US for 1.8 and 2.0 TSI engines EA888 series manufactured in Mexico. It aims to 92,000 cars, some customers not yet delivered.

Volkswagen has received a shot image after announcing a recall campaign in service, this time aimed at a group of nearly 92,000 cars sold in the United States. All affected models are equipped with motorization EA888, a TSI 1.8 or 2.0-liter equipped models like the Beetle, the Golf Variant (Sportwagen in the US), Passat and Golf, all of 2015 and 2016.
The problem generation engines comply, manufactured at Volkswagen 100th in the world, located in Mexico, it is at camshafts, whose lobes can collapse and the situation may dangerously affect braking performance.

In extreme cases, camshaft lobes that control exhaust valves of motorization of Volkswagen EA888 above may shear off himself against camshaft itself. Q. In this situation, camshaft on the exhaust side of motorisation can not engage pump vacuum power braking system, which means that any of the nearly 92,000 car could be in danger of remaining without power assist brake pedal we have become accustomed modern vehicles. Without it, the effort required pressing the brake pedal increases significantly and by that danger may occur without warning, making the chances of the driver to brake correctly in an emergency situation extremely small.


The problem at the camshafts of the engines covered by this recall comes from how they were made. If until now camshafts were molded into a predetermined shape and then finished or processed from scratch in a piece of metal , the Volkswagen opted for modular sintered camshafts. They lobs needed to operate the valves mechanically fastened and held in place by friction between the camshaft lobs. In theory, these frictions are sufficient to keep the camshaft lobes in an ideal position, but the NHTSA investigated the situation and found that large tasks faced camshafts does not allow it.
The Volkswagen said that potential problems caused no accident and has not yet had any repercussions for the client. In addition, the manufacturer stopped selling vehicles equipped with this engine could be affected.

The Volkswagen plant in Mexico where delivered EA888 engines were manufactured in the US received a serious investment in 2013
