Volkswagen Recalls 766K Vehicles for Brake System Update

Volkswagen is recalling 766,000 vehicles of its core passenger car brand worldwide for a software update to their braking control systems, Reuters reported.

The braking control system may not function properly in certain driving conditions, such as when the driver over-steers, under-steers or slams on the brakes, a spokesman said. The car maker is recalling 288,000 VW-brand cars in Germany over the issue. Including the Audi and Skoda brands, the German recall impacts about 385,000 cars, the spokesman said.
