Share  
2014 Volkswagen Passat

CARS.COM

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 84,000 model-year 2012-14 Volkswagen Passat sedans equipped with diesel engines and Direct-Shift Gearbox dual-clutch automatic transmissions

The Problem: The underbody heat shield may not be long enough to protect the right half-shaft grease boot from heat, potentially resulting in a grease leak and increasing the risk of a fire.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the drive-shaft heat shield for free.

What Owners Should Do: Volkswagen will begin notifying owners in July. Owners can call the automaker at 800-893-5298, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
