VW Recalls 260K Cars: Roadside BBQs Averted!

Volkswagen, the fancy German car maker, decided to do a little safety dance by recalling a whopping 260,000 of their vehicles. Why, you ask? Well, apparently there’s a tiny issue with potential fuel leakages and fire risks. Yikes! We don’t need any flaming cars on the highway, do we?


Now, these vehicles in question are from the 2015 to 2020 model years. That’s right, some folks have been driving around in these fire-starting machines for a while now. But fear not, dear readers, as Volkswagen is on the case with this recall. It’s like a big ol’ band-aid for their mistake.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration let us know that this fault is a rare one, affecting less than one percent of the models listed. But hey, who wants to take a chance when it comes to their car potentially turning into a mobile barbecue pit? Safety first, folks!

Now, Volkswagen themselves mentioned something about fueling issues and a pesky fuel odor that might make your car smell like a gas station. Can you imagine the horror of having a gas leak in your precious ride? That’s a big fat “no thank you” from us!

But get this, the recall notice also mentioned that even though there were 79 complaints about fuel leaking, no fires have been sparked by this problem. Phew! Dodged a bullet there, eh? Let’s give a round of applause for no spontaneous car-b-ques!

To fix this mess, Volkswagen will be updating the fuel tank’s suction jet pump. It’s like giving your car a little medical procedure to prevent it from going up in flames. And the best part? It won’t cost the car owners a single penny. Talk about a company doing right by its customers, huh?
