Updated: Jetta Recalled Over Fuel Leak Hazard

Volkswagen is recalling certain 2016-2018 Jetta vehicles which were sold with fuel rail bolts that may become loose over time, allowing fuel to leak and potentially causing a fire. Volkswagen is notifying owners and dealers will replace the fuel rail bolts and, as necessary, the fuel rail, free of charge. This recall began on December 20, 2020.

What's the Problem?

This recall affects 2013-2015 Jetta Hybrid vehicles equipped with a DQ200 7-Speed DSG Automatic Transmission, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Hairline cracks can develop within the transmission electronic gearbox (mechatronic unit) of affected models, causing an internal transmission oil leak and a decrease in oil pressure. A decrease in transmission oil pressure can cause the clutch to fail to engage, resulting in a sudden loss of drive power, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA said.

Volkswagen is notifying owners of affected Jettas, and dealers will fix the transmission software free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on Feb. 4, 2020.
