Volkswagen Group safety issue on rear middle seat of new Volkswagen Polo, Seat Ibiza and Seat Arona

Dear Customer,

We have been informed by the Volkswagen Group of a potential safety issue on one of the rear belt buckles of the new Volkswagen Polo, Seat Arona, Seat Ibiza (new models year 2018). For safety reasons, Volkswagen Group has asked their customers and rental car companies not to use the rear middle seat position of these models.

As customers’ safety is at the heart of the Goldcar service, we took immediate action to stop renting any of these 3 models, taking the time to identify a solution that will allow us to meet our customers’ travel needs without adversely affecting safety.

Following different investigations and try tests, we are now in a position to implement an interim prevention and signalling solution in the impacted vehicles in our fleet.

If you are currently renting one of these car models, we kindly ask you to follow these directions:

If you are about to rent one of these car models, please note that they have been reclassified from 5 seats to 4 seats or less in order to align the vehicle with its new manufacturer’s usage conditions. A prevention and signalling solution will be systematically applied to the middle rear seat belt of these vehicles, to prevent its usage.

Our contact centers and station managers have been mobilized to ensure the delivery of this recall and prevention campaign and duly inform our customers.

Should you have any question, please contact us at the most convenient telephone number for you:
