Volkswagen Jetta recalls

 

For Models: Volkswagen Jetta

Drive Train, April 22, 1991

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.

For Models: Volkswagen Jetta

Brakes, October 12, 1990

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1991 Jettas because the front brake hoses installed on some vehicles were of insufficient length. These hoses could stretch and develop cracks, which may result in loss of brake fluid, pressure, and braking ability. Dealers will replace both brake hoses.

For Models: Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Jetta

Brakes, August 23, 1990

Summary: OMISSION OF AIR DUCTS INTENDED TO GUIDE FLOW OF COOLING AIR TO LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT BRAKE CALIPERS COULD ALLOW BRAKE FLUID TO EXCEED ALLOWABLE OPERATING TEMPERATURE UNDER CERTAIN OPERATING CONDITIONS.

For Models: Volkswagen Jetta

Suspension & Steering, March 22, 1990

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1990 Jettas because the power steering pump bracket may break due to excessive tension caused by a lack of clearance between the pump mounting bracket and sealing flange edge of the oil pan. Bracket breakage may cause the power steering pump to loosen and the drive belt to slip, which can increase the force needed to steer. Dealers will replace the power steering pump bracket.
