Would you rather they didn’t get them back in for an update and better 12v battery?Haha lazy post right here then boys and girls, my bad!
However I have to disagree with the recalls being a normal part of the development lifecycle. This will be costing VW a silly amount of money and changing batteries on cars less than 3 months old... Come on, they've messed up.
I‘m sure that VW wouldn’t want to be replacing batteries and have to pay dealers to perform software updates, but they are where they are.
Not all cars will need a 12v battery, more recent cars won’t need one as it will already have been fitted. There is one module that needs a hard connection and firmware update, one VW had decided would never need to be OTA capable, that now will need to accept OTA updates from v3.0 onwards and that’s the reason earlier cars are coming in.
