Big car recall by Volkwagen in Brazil

10:21 am on 13 February 2010

Volkswagen is recalling nearly 200,000 cars in Brazil because of a rear-wheel problem.

VW says there is a possibility that a lack of lubrication could cause wheels to lock. In extreme cases they could loosen and even fall off.

The BBC reports the vehicles were made in Brazil for the domestic market.
