VW Recalls Jetta and Golf for Fuel Line Issue

October 06, 2011

HERNDON, VA – Volkswagen has issued a voluntary recall of 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 this time period and equipped with the 2.0L TDI Clean Diesel engine, vibrations can potentially result in a fuel line cracking, possibly causing a fuel leak.  Volkswagen said it’s not aware of any accidents or injuries caused by this issue.

The automaker said it will inspect and, if necessary, replace the fuel injection lines. The company said it would install dampers on all potentially affected vehicles with 2.0L TDI Clean Diesel engines.
