The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently announced a huge recall which will affect 300.000 vehicles because of a problem with the fuel injection lines.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 300.000 units of the Volkswagen Golf, Tiguan and Jetta models, all of them equipped with diesel engines, will be affected by this recall. The NHTSA is also saying that this action has taken place because of the potentially leaking fuel lines to the fuel injector system, and if ignored, the problem can even lead to an engine fire, as the United States safety regulators are saying.
Volkswagen didn’t announce yet how many units of the affected vehicles have been sold in every country, but worldwide, 300.000 units will be affected by this recall. Neither Volkswagen nor the NHTSA have received any reports of injuries or accidents because of this problem yet, but even so, owners of the Golf, Jetta and Tiguan, powered by diesel engines and manufactured since 2009, will have to take a trip back to the dealerships in order to get this problem fixed.
The car manufacturer has already announced its dealers about this issue and customers should be notified soon, the recall could begin. This isn’t the only massive Volkswagen recall and in October, the company’s American division had recalled 168.275 units of the Golf, Jetta and Audi A3.
