Vehicles Affected: Approximately 280 model-year 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SUVs
The Problem: The fuel tank on these vehicles may leak fuel due to a manufacturing error, which increases the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel tank for free.
What Owners Should Do: Volkswagen will begin notifying owners June 15. 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 its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
