A possible fuel leakage is the reason why Volkswagen in the United States is recalling more than 260,000 cars.

It’s believed a pump located inside the fuel tank could leak fuel and lead to a fire. The problem seems to be a seal around a suction pump located near the fuel tank that’s been installed improperly. From there, it’s possible for fuel to leak out of the car and if it comes in contact with a spark or other ignition source, a fire could break out.

There are several models involved, including the Golf, Golf GTI, Golf Sportwagen, Jetta and Audi A3. It includes cars manufactured from 2015 to 2020.

The recall excludes all-wheel-drive and is only applicable to front-wheel-drive cars.

Volkswagen United States has confirmed that it’s a case of rather safe than sorry as no fires have resulted from this problem.

Volkswagen South Africa hasn’t commented on the matter yet. At this stage, it’s believed that the recall won’t affect the local side of the car manufacturing giant.
