Volkswagen recalls over 150,000 Tiguan cars over fuel pump defect

PanARMENIAN.Net - Volkswagen is recalling more than 150,000 Tiguan sport utility vehicles over a fuel pump defect that can lead to stalling, NBC News reports.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said 151,389 Tiguan SUVs are subject to the recall. The problem is with some models from 2009 to 2014, in which gas bubbles may form in the fuel system when winterized fuel is used in warmer months or warmer areas. No accidents or injuries have been reported.

The automaker earlier recalled 18,526 Routan minivans over ignition problems that could cause the engine to suddenly shut off and prevent operation of airbags and power steering. No crashed or injuries have been reported because of that defect, either Volkswagen said. A different defect with General Motors ignition switches has been blamed in 13 deaths and led to massive recalls.
