REPORT: Volkswagen set to recall 700K cars due to roof lighting problem

(UNDATED) - Volkswagen will be recalling about 700,000 cars worldwide because of a possible problem with the roof lights, according to a report from Reuters that sourced a German trade magazine.

Reuters said the magazine, Kfz-Betrieb, reported a possible lighting defect affects Volkswagen's Tiguan and Touran cars.

The magazine reported the light strip in the panoramic roof of the cars can short circuit from humidity, causing roof scorching and possibly setting the vehicle on fire.

It added a solution is being worked on.
