    A seatbelt issue that can leave a rear passenger unbuckled during a high-speed manoeuvre has been identified in the Seat Arona, Seat Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo, and VW has now advised that owners of the affected cars do not use the middle rear seat until a recall is issued.

    Finnish automotive magazine Tekniikan Maailma found that the left rear buckle in the three models, which are based on the VW Group's MQB underpinnings, was released when the cars were carrying five people.
