Recall Alert: 2011-12 Volkswagen Jetta
Volkswagen is recalling 30,294 Jetta sedans from the 2011-12 model years because the exhaust tip could inadvertently burn a persons leg, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the affected vehicles, which were built between March 18, 2010, and Aug. 22, 2011, a stainless-steel exhaust tip was installed during importation. The tips may extend beyond the original length of the factory-installed exhaust pipes. A hot tailpipe could cause a burn if someone accidentally touches it.
The recall is expected to begin in November. Dealers will inspect the exhaust tips and if necessary replace them at no charge. Owners can call Volkswagen at 800-822-8987 or NHTSAs vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
