hello the latest emisson scandal is not EGR relatedits more about VW putting the engine into a low power mode during the emissions test to avoid fitting extra emissions equipmentI would say your vehicle is unlikely to be effected by the recallbut if it is then your local dealer will be in touchbear in mind post the recall work being carried out then the car will lack power and have worse fuel economy than before
