The car maker has filed a plan to recall the Touareg models manufactured between December 2014 and November 2017, the reports Xinhua news agency. The company will start the recall from April 30.

Engines of the vehicles to be recalled were equipped with drain valves that do not allow water to drain properly, and thus lead to possible safety problems.
