Leaking Brake Lines in the 2015 Passat

Remember the good ole days? Baseball on the radio, lemonade at Grandma’s house and cars that could make it to their first oil change before getting recalled?

These days it feels like every new car that rolls off the lot needs to roll right back in to the service station.

The 2015 VW Passat, for example, has just been recalled for a faulty brake line connection that can allow fluid to leak. That fluid is critical to your stopping power, so as it leaks out the car will need longer and longer distances to stop.

VW says workers used a busted torque wrench during assembly.
