1998 Volkswagen Jetta Recalls
Volkswagen has recalled certain 1998-1999 Jettas because the recommended cold tire inflation pressure on the label reads 2.4 bar (36.3 psi) when it should read 2.5 bar (34.8 psi). Under inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can increase the risk of a crash. Owners will be provided with corrected labels, or a dealer can install the label if the owner wishes.
Volkswagen has recalled certain 1998 Cabrio, 1997-1999 Jetta, and 1998-2003 Passat models because the fuel tank filler neck can suffer abrasion damage if the rear tire goes flat and the vehicle is driven until the tire disintegrates. This may lead to fuel leakage, which can result in a fire. Depending on the model, there are different solutions to the problem. Contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987 for more information.
