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.

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.
