Under Body Sensor Electrical Short

A sensor under the vehicle body may have improperly assembled wire seals in its electrical connector which could allow water inside and cause a short circuit. Dealers will inspect the connector and replace it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Potential Diesel Fuel Leak

Vehicles equipped with a diesel engine may have been assembled with a fuel filer that may not seal correctly. This could result in a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the diesel fuel filter to correct this concern. The Volkswagen recall number is 20R7/W3.
