Volkswagen recalling 600,000 Caddy delivery vehicles over rear-door problem

BERLIN - Germany's Volkswagen AG says it's recalling some 600,000 Caddy delivery vehicles worldwide to repair a problem with their rear doors.

The automaker, Europe's largest, said in an email sent to The Associated Press on Thursday that the vehicles affected were models built between November 2003 and January 2013.

The company says 589,000 Caddy vehicles may be fitted with a damaged pin that holds on the gas-pressure dampers that slow the closing of the rear hatch-type door. If the pin becomes detached, the company says the door can fall unexpectedly.

Volkswagen says the defect doesn't affect Caddy vehicles with folding rear doors that are fixed to the sides, and that vehicle owners affected will be informed.

The Caddy is not sold in North America.
