Because dysfunction in this area leads to campaigns of recalls, which primarily concern the United States. And it is sometimes a puzzle. Because, if for some models of the group, were recalled because the triggering of the airbags is controversial, for others, it calls a reason of a doubt exactly the opposite.

This time, it was 297 000 cars that are going to take the path to the garage. But because an electrical problem is likely to trigger the opening inappropriate airbags.

But on this subject, which has cost so dear to Volkswagen, the boss Sergio Marchionne is serene : he has indeed done do not expect not to a complaint, filed in the United States on the existence of a software vitiating the performance of its cars under the emissions standards, will have an impact on its goals of 2018.
