Today, Volkswagen Australia announced a recall exercise for the new 2017 Tiguan compact SUV for a manufacturing fault with the front seatbacks. 

According to the notice, the issue was identified to an incorrectly-configured manufacturing part in the factory, which can cause the laser-welded seams on the front seatbacks to behave adversely in the event of an accident. This would, naturally, increase the risk of injury to occupants.
