Vehicles Affected: 37,970 Volkswagen vehicles: 2015 Golf and Golf GTI models and 2014-2015 Volkswagen Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Jetta, and Passat vehicles equipped with the 1.8T and 2.0T four-cylinder engines..
The Problem: A sealing cap on the fuel rail may fail to seal, thus allowing fuel to leak into the engine compartment. Leaking fuel, in the presence of an ignition source, may result in a fire. No accidents or injuries related to this issue have been reported.
The Fix: Volkswagen will notify all known owners of affected vehicles and will inspect and, if necessary, replace the fuel rail. This work will be performed for customers free of charge.
What Owners Should Do: Volkswagen will notify all owners of affected vehicles and will instruct them to arrange for an appointment with an authorized Volkswagen dealer.
