VW probing new Golf’s water leakage problem

Volkswagen Group has said it is looking into the causes of water leakage in its new Golf and played down a report by a German magazine describing the problem as large-scale, Reuters has reported. "We have come to know this issue through individual cases," a spokesman at Volkswagen's headquarters told the news service. The report, by Germany's weekly Auto Bild, said the company's best-selling model is prone to leakage of water into the front passenger's footwell, because of wrongly installed drainage tubes linked to air-conditioning technology.
