Volkswagen Recalls the Tiguan due to fuel issues

Volkswagen Recalls the Tiguan due to fuel issues

151389 Volkswagen Tiguan cross over vehicles are being recalled. The affected model years are 2009-2014.

When winterized fuel is warmed, either by ambient temperature or while sitting in the fuel system of a hot engine, bubbles can form as the fuel vaporises.

This leads to “air” in the fuel system and stalling issues.

The recall was made as a preventative measure, meaning no accidents have yet occurred as a result of this fault.

The repair is a simple software update which will increase the fuel system pressure and prevent bubbles from inhibiting performance.

Volkswagen is covering the costs involved.
