30,294 Volkswagen Jetta sedans are being recalled after several people claimed to have burned their legs on extended exhaust pipes. Volkswagen will begin recalling 2011-2012 Jetta models this November and will inspect and replace the exhaust pipe tips for free.
An investigation in August lead Volkswagen of America Inc. to discover that stainless steal exhaust tips were installed on Jettas after importation, which causes the pipes to protrude out further than original factory-installed exhaust pipes. Unexpected people walking near affected Jettas are at risk of burns, especially if the car has been on and running for some time.
