VW recalls 2014 Jetta, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, and Passat vehicles because of leaking O-ring seals that could cause fire

Volkswagen

Volkswagen of America, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2014 Jetta, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, and Passat vehicles equipped with a 1.8T engine and torque converter automatic transmission. In the affected vehicles, the O-ring seals between the oil cooler and the transmission may leak fluid.

The leaking transmission fluid could contact a hot surface and result in a vehicle fire.

Volkswagen says approximately 26,000 vehicles are effected and has agreed to notify owners, and dealers will replace the O-ring seals in the transmission oil cooler, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on April 16, 2014.
