    Just had this recall letter from VW, i've not heard of any problems with E-Call but they reckon there could be a problem. Local dealer said there was an update to Air Con.

    From Autocar 5 June 2020:

    Volkswagen has resumed deliveries of the new, Mk8 Golf after a software problem was unearthed in May.

    The problem, which centered around the eCall emergency assist function not working reliably, caused deliveries to be halted throughout Europe while a fix was developed.

    Volkswagen now claims that a software update for the control unit has resolved the issue. It will be installed on every Golf in future and retrofitted to those already built, while a voluntary recall will be issued to ensure cars already delivered to customers are fixed.

    How can it be safety related? Is a car not equipped with this system by default now unsafe? I am beginning to hate computerised cars, the future is bleak...

    What software version are people on?

    I seem to be on 1664, when I click on update software. It says checking for updates indefinitely.

    Had the car crap out on me today with about 3 errors all pop up at once, then for the cars system to restart and then be ok. (Airbag, tpms, parking sensors).

    Likewise here, 1664. I did manage to get a software update (TO 1664) after getting the car by connecting to my home wifi and checking for updates, but since then just keeps checking indefinitely.

    I also had a few error messages appear today mentioning about the 48v system malfunction and lane keeping assist not available. My IT support 101 kicked in and "turn it off and on again" worked a treat.

    Definitely still plenty of software issues with the Golf 8 that I'm hoping get ironed out soon! It'd be great if VW put a software changelog somewhere we could view, similar to what Tesla do.
