Vehicles Affected: Approximately 110,000 model-year 2015-16 Volkswagen Golf and Golf GTI hatchbacks, Golf SportWagen wagons and Audi A3 luxury cars

The Problem: Due to a problem with the suction pump inside the fuel tank, fuel may flow into the evaporative emissions system. If fuel accumulates in the system, it may leak through the charcoal canister filter element, increasing the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the suction pump for free.

What Owners Should Do: The automaker will begin notifying owners in November and will send a second notification later when parts become available. Owners can call Volkswagen at 800-893-5298 and Audi at 800-253-2834. They can also call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to for more info.
