If you own a 2015-2020 VW or Audi

… you might want to park it outside until the recall repairs have been completed.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 24V110000

Manufacturer Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.


Potential Number of Units Affected 261,257


Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain front-wheel drive 2015-2020 Audi A3 Sedan, 2015-2019 Audi A3 Cabriolet, 2019-2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI, 2018 Golf Sportwagen GP, 2018-2019 Golf Sportwagen A7, 2015-2017 Golf Sportwagen, 2015-2020 Golf GTI, and 2015-2020 Golf A7 vehicles. Due to a problem with a suction jet pump seal inside the fuel tank, fuel may flow into the evaporative emissions (EVAP) system and possibly leak out of the charcoal canister.


Dealers will replace the suction pump, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed April 12, 2024. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298 or Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen’s numbers for this recall are VW: 20UF/Audi: 20YF. Vehicles that were previously recalled under 16V-647 will need to have the new remedy completed.

Interesting. I wonder how liquid gasoline can even flow into the canister? Isn’t the canister higher than the gas tank? Maybe the anti-pollution requirement for an occasional evap system pressurization test provides the force need to move the liquid gasoline uphill? Hopefully part of the solution for the owners will include repairing any damage to the canister, and clogs in the various evap valves.

Is this a fire hazard? I thought only EVs were a fire hazard! :smiling_imp:


This will–hopefully–introduce a bit of reality for… some people.
