Volkswagen recalls more than 62,000 vehicles in two recalls
German automaker Volkswagen is starting its year with two recalls due to headlight and fuel leak issues that may cause injurious accidents, the Examiner reported on December 31.
On January 15, Volkswagen will start recalling more than 25,007 Jetta units manufactured between July and November in 2014 due to a software malfunction that turns the low beam headlights off whenever the high beam headlights are turned on. The issue compromises illumination, and may increase the risk of accident.
The company also said it is voluntary recalling 2014-2015 model years of Passat, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, and Jetta vehicles, as well as the 2015 Golf and GTI cars after learning about a cap sealing at the fuel rail that may fail to seal, increasing the risk of fire if the fuel leaks into the engine compartment.
