NEWS: VW recalling 80,000 Tiguan SUVs and Jetta Hybrids
Detroit News @ November 17, 2013

NOVEMBER 2013 - Volkswagen AG is recalling more than 80,000 vehicles in North America for electrical issues.

The German automaker told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration it is issuing two new recalls for separate electrical issues, including more than 78,000 2009-2011 Tiguan SUVs in the United States and Canada because a fuse may overheat and melt that could cause a partial loss of exterior lighting.

Owners will be notified next month and dealers will replace the fuse with an upgraded version. The recall includes 62,155 Tiguan SUVs in the United States and 16,235 in Canada.

Earlier this month, NHTSA opened an investigation into 61,000 Tiguan SUVs because of complaints about exterior lights. Agency officials said they received 26 complaints about partial or complete loss of exterior lights in the 2009-11 VW Tiguan.

“The reports suggest the problem worsens over time with additional exterior lighting malfunctioning as the problem progresses. Most of the complaints report finding an overheated and melted fuse in the under-hood fuse box,” the NHTSA said.

An owner in October told NHTSA that, when driving 60 mph, the headlights and tail lights failed intermittently on the 2011 SUV. The dealer replaced the main fuse panel on the vehicle with 35,000 miles. Another owner told NHTSA that, after starting the SUV, the lights failed and a dealer said the fuse box had melted and it would cost $630 to repair. The owner said the dealer couldn’t guarantee it wouldn't happen again.

VW is also recalling 3,837 2013-2014 Jetta Hybrid cars in the United States because the internal gearbox lead frame may rust because of fluid additives. If rust deposits gather between electrical wiring, a short in the power supply can result in blown gearbox fuses and the failure of the gearbox hydraulic pump. The vehicle may lose power but can coast to a stop, VW said.

No failures have been reported in the United States, but VW said failures have been reported in some foreign markets the company is issuing a worldwide recall to address the issue.

VW will notify owners next month and will replace the synthetic gearbox oil with a new mineral-based oil.
