Two errors in a short time

This is the second time in a short time that Volkswagen is recalling cars due to the risk of fire. German media reported earlier this week that an incorrectly fitted engine cover could pose a fire risk in another 100,000 cars. This has caused 16 car fires so far, according to KBA.
