Is Your VW Golf Leaking Water?

Ain't nothing like air conditioning water leaking into your car.

A report has surfaced claiming that Volkswagen may have a little problem on its hands with its most popular model. Auto Bild and Reuters report the seventh-gen Golf may have a faulty drainage tube in the air conditioning system which in turn could leak water into the front passenger’s footwell. VW is apparently aware of the potential problem and is currently investigating. So far, only 46 new Golfs have needed to be repaired for a water leakage problem. But the fact is, this issue could plague the German automaker on a much larger scale.

The Golf is built on the common MQB platform, so others models could also be affected, such as the Audi A3 and the Seat Leon. All told, as many as 300,000 units may have a water leakage problem. VW claims it so far has no knowledge of any additional models experiencing this potentially serious problem. Fortunately, the new Golf has yet to go on sale in the US, so VW has some time to issue a recall and fix the problem before a potential PR disaster ensues.
