Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.
Due to a problem with the suction pump inside the fuel tank, fuel may flow into the evaporative emissions (EVAP) system.
As fuel accumulates in the EVAP system, it may leak out through the charcoal canister filter element.
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the suction pump, free of charge.
Parts are not currently available.
An interim notice will be sent to owners by early November and a second notice will be sent when parts are available.
Volkswagen’s numbers for this recall are 20Y6 and 20Y5.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
