Fire hazard prompted Volkswagen recall of 38,000 cars
Posted on Monday, January 19th, 2015
The Volkswagen Group of America, the American branch of the world’s third-largest automaker, recently announced a recall of 38,000 vehicles due to the risk that a fuel leak in the engine may lead to fires, WIVB 4 reported on December 31.
This is a preemptive recall, as Volkswagen claimed it has yet to receive a report of injury or accident related to this issue.
Included in the recall are vehicles from the 2014 to 2015 model years, such as the Volkswagen Beetle, Jetta, and Passat. The 2015 models of the Golf and the GTI are also covered in the recall.
