It is understood that some vehicles within the scope of this recall due to deviation in the supplier's production process, the gap between the fuel pump impeller and the impeller shell is small, the impeller surface roughness is larger, and gasoline deposits are easy to accumulate between the fuel pump impeller and the impeller shell, resulting in poor rotation of the impeller and poor fuel pump operation, which in extreme cases may lead to the loss of power of the vehicle and the existence of safety risks. In view of product defects, SAIC Volkswagen will replace the improved fuel pump for vehicles within the scope of the recall free of charge, in order to eliminate safety risks.
The recall initiated because of fuel pump defects is nothing new in the domestic market. Earlier, large-scale recalls have broken out, including Subaru, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi and other Japanese brands.
