Volkswagen Recall

Sep 2, 2014


Volkswagen has announced the recall of over 150,000 Tiguans over fuel issues. In the affected units, bubbles may form in winterized fuel that could cause the vehicle to stall. And "a vehicle stall," says the NHTSA, "increases the risk of a crash."

The issue could result from winter fuel that is warmed up, whether in warmer climates, hotter seasons or under "engine hot soak" – tech speak for when a cold fluid (whether a coolant, lubricant or fuel) sits in a hot engine block after it's been shut off. Under such circumstances, deposits could collect in the fuel system, preventing proper circulation and causing the engine to stall shortly after ignition.

Affected Models:


Tiguan manufactured between July 2007 and June 2014, covering the 2009 through 2014 model years.
