Volkswagen Vehicles Recalled

Volkswagen of America Inc. has issued a recall on over 30,000 2011-2012 Jetta sedans. After receiving several complaints in July of passersby burning their legs on protruding exhaust pipes, the automaker conducted an investigation and decided to issue a recall, which will start in November.

The investigation revealed that stainless steel exhaust pipe tips were installed on new Jetta models after importation. The tips stick out farther than original factory-installed exhaust pipes, which contributes to the inadvertent contact by unsuspecting people. If the car has been on and running for some time, the pipes could be very hot and cause burns. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Volkswagen will inspect and replace exhaust pipes as necessary, free of charge.
