Volkswagen issues recalls due to headlight issues, fire hazard

Automaker giant Volkswagen issued back-to-back recalls of its newer units after discovering multiple safety issues that may cause accidents and fire, according to a report by the Examiner on December 31.

Starting January 15, the company will recall more than 25,007 brand new Jetta cars in the U.S. because of a software problem that causes the low beam headlights to disengage when the high beams are turned on. The condition may lower the driver’s visibility, thereby increasing the risk of accidents.

Meanwhile, approximately 37,979 2015 Golf and GTI models and 2014 to 2015 Jetta, Passat, Beetle, and Beetle Convertible  models are also being recalled by the company due to a defective fuel rail sealing cap that may leak fuel into the engine compartment, making the vehicle at risk of fire.
