Volkswagen defends safety record and denies recall

VOLKSWAGEN Australia says it has no plans to recall vehicles, despite recent complaints about some models suddenly decelerating.

A coronial investigation was held this week into the death Melissa Ryan, who was killed when her Volkswagen Golf was hit from behind by a truck on the Monash Freeway in 2011.

According to media reports, the truck driver and Ms Ryan's family said the car dramatically slowed before the crash.

The investigation sparked complaints by other owners.

But Volkswagen Australia has defended the safety of its cars, saying there is no evidence to suggest "vehicle fault was involved in [Melissa Ryan's] crash".
