Volkswagen Recalling Thousands for Fuel Leaks
A mobile company recalls its cellphone because of its defective and explosive battery. Now, Volkswagen announces recall on selected VW and Audi models. Volkswagen will recall 334,000 of its units to correct the leakage which may lead to fire, although nothing has been reported yet involving fire incident. The models affected by the recall are Volkswagen's Golf, Sport Wagen, GTI and Audi's Q5 and Q7 SUVs, A3, A6 and A7 sedans and A3 Cabriolet.
A recall can be costly to a company but it is the most ethical practice a company needs to do. Allowing the client to buy the car that already has an identified risk is taking the company to a higher problem on safety. Not doing anything to affected vehicle owners is also reflective of the company's service to its clients. Notifications will be sent to affected vehicle owners in November. VW and Audi consumers who would go to their dealers are not required to pay for the repair.
The Large 3-Part Recall
Five models of the Audi and VW Golfs produced in America will be part of the large three part recall. This recall is caused by different factors according to the United States safety regulators and Volkswagen. The first recall involves Audis Q5 and Q7 crossover vehicles around 143,214. A crack in fuel cap flange caused fuel leakage out of its fuel tank.
The second recall will be for Golf, Golf Sport Wagen, GTI and sedan & cabrio version of Audi A3. The fuel leakage is caused by the suction pump inside the fuel tank. The recall will affect 110,042 units. The third recall includes Audi A6 and A7 with a total of 28,249 units. The fuel leakage is spotted in hose and engine compartment where it is possible to cause explosion of the car.
