Volkswagen Passat Recall In USA
Volkswagen Group North America is recalling not all but just some of the 2015 Passat sedans in USA because of a brake-line problem that may result in leaking brake fluid.
“The affected vehicles have a brake line at the left rear wheel area that may not have been properly tightened,” said NHTSA in its recall summary. “If the brake line was not properly tightened, it may leak brake fluid, causing a reduction in braking performance, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.” There are no accidents or injuries linked to the recall, Volkswagen told federal safety regulators.
If an owner notices a wet spot under the vehicle in the area of the driver’s side wheel, it may mean that the affected fitting is leaking brake fluid. If enough fluid is lost, the brake-warning light on the instrument panel may illuminate.
“If either of these happen, the customer should immediately contact their nearest authorized dealer or qualified workshop and make arrangements to have the vehicle inspected,” Volkswagen North America said. The affected vehicles were built in 2015.
