Volkswagen Jetta drivers should take note of a recent recall that impacts over 210,000 sedans from 2016-2018 model years. The problem includes loosening bolts in the engine that have the potential to lead to a fuel leak that results in a fire. The bolts that secure the engine’s fuel rails weren’t tightened properly and may lead to leaks.
What Drivers Should Know
In affected vehicles, drivers may notice there is a fuel-like odor coming from the engine compartment, and some vehicles have leaking fuel coming from the engine. In this case, drivers need to contact an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Volkswagen dealers are also providing towing services if needed.
In the case that you notice the fuel smell while you’re driving, make sure to pull over immediately and turn the vehicle off. Continuing to drive may put you or other drivers at risk of becoming injured.
Owners will be contacted by mail, but they may also contact Volkswagen directly at 800-822-8987.
Are There Any Injuries?
Volkswagen is not aware of injuries, crashes, or property damage as the result of the recall. They are still working on developing a remedy to the problem that will likely involve tightening the fuel rail bolts.
