  • Volkswagen Recalls Passat Sedans in the U.S.

Volkswagen recently recalled 91000 Passat Sedans to inspect and replace cable insulation in the United States.

Volkswagen is going to recall thousands of Passat Sedans in the United States. Volkswagen ’s spokesperson said on Friday that VW is recalling all these Passat sedans in order to fix the issue of insufficient cable insulation.

The total numbers of recalled cars is 91000. The company holds doubts that this problem could cause short circuits and serious injuries to the users. But no death or injury has taken place yet, the company said.

Volkswagen has recalled Passat Sedans to fix cable insulation.The company has assembled improper wire seals on the connectors that can allow water in and cause the short circuits.

Due to the fault in cable insulation, the connector could overheat and cause a fire. All the recalled Passat Sedan cars were assembled between 2012 and 2014 in the U.S. while vehicles in other markets were not affected by the fault, VW spokesman also said.

Although Volkswagen has recalled the Passat Sedans, the company has not informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration when this recall would begin.

According to Reuters, Volkswagen will inspect the connector and will replace it free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Previously, Volkswagen has been working on diesel vehicles and the company was caught up in the emissions cheating scandal in U.S. VW’s spokesperson said that this recall has nothing to do with the diesel emissions scandal.
