The Volkswagen Beetle, Golf, Jetta and Passat are the subject of a new recall which has been recently announced by the car manufacturer.
According to Volkswagen, the four models mentioned above are the subject of a new recall. This has been announced because of the sealing cap in the fuel rail, which might leak fuel into the engine compartment and this will increase the chances of a fire.
“Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Jetta vehicles manufactured March 28, 2014, to November 24, 2014, certain 2014-2015 Passat vehicles manufactured April 7, 2014, to November 18, 2014, certain 2015 Golf and GTI vehicles manufactured July 1, 2014, to November 20, 2014, and certain 2014-2015 Beetle and Beetle Convertible vehicles manufactured March 31, 2014, to November 27, 2014” as it is said in the company’s press release.
The Volkswagen dealers will be replacing the fuel rails with new parts, free of charge to the owners, who will be notified by the carmaker soon. VW hasn’t yet provided a notification schedule but if you happen to own one of the vehicles mentioned above, you should contact the Volkswagen customer service at 1 800 822 8987 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration vehicle safety hotline at 1 888 327 4236.
