2010 Volkswagen Beetle Recalls
The Federal government continually reviews and updates crash safety standards. The standards were updated on September 1, 2010. Twenty-seven Beetles built between September 1st and 22nd, 2010 do not meet the new standards. These vehicles will be replaced with a comparable vehicle that was produced prior to September 1, 2010. The recall is scheduled to begin prior to February 1, 2011.
Volkswagen is recalling certain 2007–2009 Jetta, Jetta Sportwagon, Golf, and Rabbit, as well as 2006–2010 Beetle and Beetle Convertible vehicles equipped with a 2.5L gasoline engine due to a possibly damaged fuel supply line. Under hood fasteners may chafe against the fuel supply line, resulting in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Dealers will perform vehicle-appropriate inspections and repairs in order to protect the fuel supply line from chafing damage.
