Volkswagen has recently announced a recall for the Tiguan because of a problem in which bubbles may form in winterized fuel, causing the vehicle to stall.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are a total of 150,000 units of the Volkswagen Tiguan which will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of the problem with the fuel bubbles.
“In isolated cases, it is possible that gas bubbles may form in the fuel system when winterized fuel with high vapor pressures is used in warmer areas or during months with higher ambient temperatures or during engine hot soak”, says the car manufacturer in its official press release.
The affected Volkswagen Tiguan vehicles have been produced between July 2007 and June 2014 and are covering the 2009 – 2014 model years. The car manufacturer will be notifying the owners of these crossovers and their local dealerships will be updating the software to increase fuel pressure free of charge. VW Says that no injuries or crashes have been reported related to this incident. The recall should begin soon but for more details, owners of the models mentioned above can contact the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 or VW at 1-800-822-8987.
