A defective quick connector might allow fuel supply lines to detatch from the engine of over 500 Golf R cars.
Volkswagen is recalling the cars because when detached, the lines stop supplying fuel to the crankshaft (very important) and start depositing it onto hot engine surfaces (very dangerous).
The same connectors are being recalled in the Audi A3 and TT. Maybe it’s time to go back to the drawing board on this quick connector design?keep reading article "Quick Connecters Are Allowing Fuel Lines to Detach"
The head restraint guide that keeps it attached to the seat frame may not have been properly welded in 169 VW vehicles.
About the Recall ∞
- Recalled are 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf, Golf R, Audi A3 Sedan and RS3 vehicles that need the rear seat frames replaced._
- In the last couple months a petition was handed to safety regulators because of weld concerns in the Jeep Wrangler, Subaru had to recall the brand new Ascent for missing welds, and even Maserati’s sub-frames are breaking because of welding mistakes.
Volkswagen just can't seem to catch a break. Well, unless you count their child door locks. Those are breaking all over the place.
Simple vibrations are disengaging the rear door child locks in many 2016 VWs, prompting a recall.
"A molding problem caused the locking mechanism to be improperly manufactured causing the position retaining mechanism inside the door lock to break"
That's a problem, especially for my toddler where her seat-kicking-snack-throwing-booster-seat-bouncing routine creates much more than a simple vibration.
The 2016 CC, Golf R, Tiguan, and eGolf are all involved. For specific build dates, visit CarComplaints.com.keep reading article "Vibrations Opening Child Door Locks in 2016 Volkswagens"
