Fuel Leak From Fuel Supply Line

Recall Details

The fuel supply line may leak fuel at a connector which may not seal properly. Dealers will inspect and replace affected fuel lines free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

A connector in the fuel line may not seal properly, resulting in a fuel leak. Leaking fuel causes odor and a fire hazard.

Volkswagen notified owners of affected vehicles starting in February 2008. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them. The Volkswagen recall number is 20N4.
