Recall on Volkswagen Golf, GTI, Jetta, and Passat

By ,

Volkswagen Canada is recalling 6,047 Jettas, Golfs, and Passats from the 2013-2014 model years that are equipped with a diesel engine and factory installed block heater.

Apparently, the block heater could overheat while in use, possibly resulting in a fire. Volkswagen dealers will replace the block heater at no cost, but affected owners are advised to stop using it in the meantime.

Another recall for Volkswagen Jetta and GTI
The Jetta (2009-2010) has been hit with another recall that also targets the GTI (2009). Overall, 19,349 units are affected in Canada.

In some cases, a fuse can overheat and damage the fuse box, causing a partial loss of exterior vehicle lighting and therefore increasing the risk of a crash. Here, dealers will update the fuse.
