Volkswagen Recalls CC and Passat Vehicles

Volkswagen has announced that it is recalling approximately 280,915 CC and Passat sedans and wagons for a problem with the fuel pump control module. The engines in these vehicles can stall as a result of the loss of power to the fuel pump module.  The loss of power means that fuel flow to the engine will cease causing the engine to stall and increasing the possibility of a collision.  In addition, the fuel pump module can remain running after the ignition is turned off.  All of the vehicles involved in this recall are equipped with four cylinder engines.  The vehicles involved in this recall are 2009 to 2016 Volkswagen CC and 2006 to 2010 Volkswagen Passat.  Volkswagen will begin owner notification in October and will send a second letter to owners advising of the date of availability of the replacement fuel pump modules.  For additional information, owners can contact Volkswagen customer service directly by calling 1-800-893-5298.  Owners should refer to Volkswagen recall number 20AE.
