The Tiguan recall is owing to a stalling issue, due to which there is formation of bubbles in the fuel system of vehicles when there is usage of winter fuel blends during periods of warm temperatures. There is a decrease in the performance of fuel pump as well as pressure, due to which the incidence of stalling is increased.
This problem can be solved if revised electronic control module software is installed, reports Reuters. As per VW, 38,101 Tiguans were sold in Canada and 151,389 were sold in the United States.
Also there is an issue of the ignition-switch. VW stated that the engine shuts off if the key fob hangs up between the ACC and On detents due to unintended driver interaction with key fob or harsh roadway conditions.
The company said that the WIN Module Detent Ring would be replaced on all the affected vehicles. In a letter, the chief of the recall management division of the administration, Jennifer Timian said that “”In certain conditions bubbles may form in the fuel system which could result in the vehicle stalling,”
As of now, no injuries or crashes have been reported due to this defect. The recall would begin on the 19th of August as per the letter. The software of the car would be updated for increasing the pressure of fuel-pump.
