According to reports, cracks can develop in the fuel injection system and cause the fuel to leak which could possibly cause an engine fire. The company does not know of any fires, crashes, or injuries caused by the defect. Volkswagen will replace the fuel injector line in some models and will install dampers to cut the vibrations on all of them. The repairs will be made free of charge and will start in November according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The recall includes 161,144 Golf and Jetta models and another 7,131 Audi A3's. About 20% of the cars made during the recall model years will need to have the fuel lines replaced and all will get vibration dampers. More than 20% of the Volkswagens sold in the U.S. have diesel engines.
