Recall Alert : 2015-2016 Volkswagen/Audi A3

RECALL Subject : Suction Pump may Allow Fuel into the EVAP System

Report Receipt Date: SEP 07, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V647000
Component(s): ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING , FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE
Potential Number of Units Affected: 110,042


Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

SUMMARY:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Volkswagen Golf, Golf SportWagen, GTI, Audi A3 sedan and A3 Cabriolet vehicles. Due to a problem with the suction pump inside the fuel tank, fuel may flow into the evaporative emissions (EVAP) system.
CONSEQUENCE:
As fuel accumulates in the EVAP system, it may leak out through the charcoal canister filter element. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
REMEDY:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the suction pump, free of charge. Parts are not currently available. An interim notice will be sent to owners by early November and a second notice will be sent when parts are available. Volkswagen owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298, Audi owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's numbers for this recall are 20Y6 and 20Y5.
