Leaking Brake Lines in the 2017 Passat

It’s been a bad week for 2017 Volkswagens. First there was a tiny recall for seized up engines in the 2017 Jetta. Now the 2017 Passat is being recalled to replace leaking brake lines.

Engineers traced the brake fluid leaks to end flares of the brake lines that were damaged during manufacturing, causing the seals to be faulty. A low brake fluid warning light will activate when the fluid reaches a certain level.

Details on this recall are still coming in.
