2012 Passat Fuel System Problems

Volkswagen has announced that they are recalling certain models of the 2012 Passat vehicles manufactured from January 18, 2011 through June 1, 2011.  They stated that during assembly, these vehicles were built with a diesel fuel filter element that may not seal correctly.


Over time, or after certain driving distances, these vehicles are susceptible to fuel leakage.  Leaking fuel, in the presence of an ignition source, may lead to a fire.  Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the diesel fuel filter elements free of charge.  The recall is expected to begin during May 2012.  Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
