A manufacturing defect in the battery cells could be to blame for the problem affecting the VW ID.3 and VW ID.4.
Volkswagen is in a bit of a mess with two of its flagship electric cars, the Volkswagen ID.3 and Volkswagen ID.4, after detecting possible manufacturing defects in the battery cells fitted in these models.
A total of around 10,000 vehicles are affected, and this time only models marketed in Europe are affected.
Volkswagen is already working on solving the problem for the affected vehicles, which will have to go to a workshop to have the vehicle checked and the problem solved. Initially, Volkswagen dealerships will notify customers who have one of the affected vehicles to schedule a workshop appointment.
According to Volkswagen, it will take two days to check and fix the problem, and in the meantime Volkswagen will provide a replacement car.
As far as we have been able to find out, the ID.3 and ID.4 affected are a batch of those manufactured in 2020 whose battery modules could be defective and could have problems in the future. In the event that a problem with a module is detected in the revised units, it will be replaced at no cost to the customer, as expected.
If you think you may be one of those affected and have not received a call from Volkswagen, we recommend that you contact the dealer who sold you the vehicle to clarify whether your vehicle is affected and requires servicing or not.
