RepairPal Expert Overview

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1991 Jettas because the lock nut of the cruise control rod for the operating servo may not have been properly torqued during manufacture. This can allow the road adjustment to change, which increases engine idle speed and stopping distance. Dealers will check and properly torque the lock nut.
