Volkswagen Recalls 168,000 Cars Due to Fuel Leaks

Recall

Volkswagen has had to recall over 168,000 of their diesel engines due to fuel leakage problems.

German automaker Volkswagen has had to recall over 168,000 of their diesel engines due to fuel leaks, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. At the NHTSA's behest, VW recalled diesel engines from their models that were affected, such as the 2010 to 2012 Volkswagen Golf and the 2009 to 2012 Jetta. Audi models like the Audi A3 from 2010 through 2012 model years were also affected.

The problems emanated out of the engines due to a defect in the fuel injectors that ended up causing fires. Cracks in the aforementioned fuel injectors on the 2-liter engines cause the fuel to spill out and possibly cause fires. No injuries were reported due to the malfunctioning machines, however the recall should make certain that number will stay the same. The German automaker has promised to replace all the deformed fuel injectors free of charge.
