Additional information:

Among the 54 recalls the NHTSA has announced this May comes news of the following:

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”) has recalled an estimated 84,262 model year 2012-2014 Passat vehicles, equipped with diesel engines and Direct-Shift Transmissions (“DSG”). The vehicle’s underbody heat shield may not be long enough to protect the right half-shaft grease boot from heat, potentially resulting in a grease leak.

According to the NHTSA, if the leaking grease contacts a heated surface, such as the exhaust system and/or the diesel particulate filter (“DPF”), it could increase the risk of fire.
