Volkswagen and Audi Brazil are recalling 9,395 Golf, Bora, New Beetle and A3 models built between March and September 2001 to check for an overheating problem in the ABS electronic control system, writes Rogério Louro Alves.

Last month Volkswagen also recalled 11,000 Brazilian made Gol, Parati, Saveiro, Santana and Kombi models due to faulty disc brake calipers produced by Continental Teves do Brasil which also affected about 45,000 GM, Fiat and Ford vehicles.
