Volkswagen is recalling models equipped with 2.0L engines with 147 kw because they may have a vacuum line that can fracture and become disconnected at low ambient temperatures. This may cause the brake power assist to become inoperative, which can lead to increased braking effort and stopping distance. Dealers will install the newly designed vacuum line.
