Volkswagen Recalls Jetta & Golf TDI For Fuel Line Issue
Volkswagen is conducting a voluntary safety recall on approximately 159,884 Volkswagen Jetta and Jetta SportWagens manufactured from May 2008 through September 2011 and Golf models manufactured from May 2009 through September 2011.
On vehicles manufactured during these time periods and equipped with the 2.0L TDI Clean Diesel engine, certain vibrations can potentially result in a fuel line cracking, possibly causing a fuel leak. Volkswagen is not aware of any accidents or injuries caused by this issue.
In order to prevent this incident from occurring, customers will be sent notification letters beginning in November, requesting them to contact an authorized Volkswagen dealership for inspection and repair.
The fuel injection lines will be inspected and replaced, if necessary. On all vehicles with 2.0L TDI Clean Diesel engine vibration dampers will be installed. This procedure will be performed free of charge. Customers with questions or concerns should contact Volkswagen Customer Care at 1-800-822-8987.
