VW is pulling back 151,000 Tiguans for gas bubble problems. My wife is wondering if they can include me in the recall as well.
VW says it’s possible for gas bubbles to form in the fuel system when winterized fuel with high vapor pressures is used in warmer temperatures. The bubbles can also occur if the Tiguan is restarted soon after being shut off with a hot engine. Bubbles in your car’s gas is worse than bubbles out your own … nevermind … just know that you want to get rid of them to avoid things like an engine misfire.
Additionally, the fuel pump can experience pressure problems because of a degraded electrical current which can lead to the engine stalling.
