It’s unlikely to surprise any of the enthusiasts who prefer a good old-fashioned button, but Volkswagen has gotten into trouble because of its touch-capacitive buttons. One, in particular, is leading to the recall of 2,238 Golfs.



The cars, 2022 Golf R and GTI models, have a touch-capacitive button to operate the sunroof (among other things). The button, it was pointed out to VW in April, is too sensitive and can, therefore, be activated accidentally.
