Volkswagen Jetta, Beetle and Passat Fuel Leak Recall

 

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. more commonly known as Volkswagen is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Jetta vehicles manufactured between March 28, 2014 and November 24, 2014, certain 2014-2015 Passat vehicles manufactured between April 7, 2014 and November 18, 2014, certain 2015 Golf and GTI vehicles manufactured between July 1, 2014 and November 20, 2014, and certain 2014-2015 Beetle and Beetle Convertible vehicles manufactured between March 31, 2014 and November 27, 2014. A sealing cap located at the fuel rail may fail, allowing fuel to leak into the engine compartment.

As one can imagine, this possible fuel leak poses a great danger to the occupants of the car as a fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a vehicle fire.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel rails with new parts, free of charge. Volkswagen has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service directly at 1-800-822-8987. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 24Bi.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).
