VIN: wvgzg77l65d****

Summary of Complaint

My vehicle is leaking gas, I was told there is a recall on my vehicle so I took it into the volkswagen dealership where I was told that the recall only covers the driver side leak but not the passenger side leak which makes absolutely no sense. Because when I drive off of the service lot the problem still exists which means I could be blown up or cause injury of fire. This recall should cover ALL aspects of the fuel leak! Not just one side! Making customers pay for this is disgusting! I am a single mom and don't have an extra $600 to spend on an issue that should have been corrected by the manufacturer.

VIN: WVGCM77L25D****

Summary of Complaint

IN JUNE 2017, I NOTICED FUEL SMELL INSIDE THE VEHICLE. ON JULY 1, 2017, I INSPECTED THE ISSUE AND DISCOVERED THAT THE FUEL FILTER FLANGE WAS DAMAGED AND LEAKING FUEL (FUMES) CLOSE TO ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS AND UNDER THE SEAT WHERE MY SON SITS. PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHED PHOTO. I ORDERED THE RETAINER RINGS AND GASKETS (BOTH SIDES) FROM A VW DEALERSHIP. ON JULY 14, 2017, I ORDERED TA NEW FUEL FILTER FLANGE FROM A SELLER ON EBAY THAT SPECIALIZES IN NEW VW PARTS. THE FUEL FILTER FLANGE WAS NEW AND MANUFACTURED BY VDO (CONTINENTAL). I INSTALLED ALL THE PARTS TOWARDS THE END OF JULY 2017 AND THIS FIXED THE PROBLEM. I ACTUALLY REPLACED BOTH SIDES (DRIVER & PASSENGER) BECAUSE BOTH SIDES ARE A PROBLEM. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT I WASN'T OR SHOULDN'T HAVE WAITED UNTIL THE RECALL NOTICE. THIS WAS A SERIOUS SAFETY FLAW AND NEEDED TO BE FIXED IMMEDIATELY. I HAVE A GOOD KNOWLEDGE IN MECHANICS AND CAPABLE TO PERFORM MOST REPAIRS. I DIDN'T DRIVE THE CAR UNTIL I RECEIVED THE PARTS AND FIXED THE ISSUE. I SUBMITTED MY RECEIPTS FOR REIMBURSEMENT UNDER THE RECALL. PLEASE SEE THE LETTER FROM VW DENYING ANY REIMBURSEMENT. THEY CLAIM THAT MY PARTS WERE NOT NEW AND NOT VW APPROVED PARTS. THE RETAINER RING & GASKET WAS PURCHASED BY A VW DEALERSHIP AND THE FUEL FILTER FLANGE WAS NEW AND MANUFACTURED BY VDO, WHICH IS THE OE COMPANY THAT MAKES THEM FOR VW. VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA IS CLEARLY NOT TAKING THIS ISSUE SERIOUS AND DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE SAFETY OF ITS CONSUMERS. THEY ARE DENYING CLAIMS FOR REIMBURSEMENT AND DISREGARDING THIS SERIOUS ISSUE. I HAD NO CHOICE AND FIXED THE ISSUE IMMEDIATELY.

VIN: WVGCM77L95D****

Summary of Complaint

GASOLINE LEAKING FROM THE TANK RUNS OVER THE RIGHT-SIDE EXHAUST TUBES TO THE GROUND. THE FLOW OF THE FUEL LEAKAGE IS VERY HIGH AT A DROP-RATE OF MORE THAN ONE DROP PER SECOND WITH THE VEHICLE PARKED AND THE ENGINE RUNNING AT IDLE SPEED. ONCE THE ENGINE IS TURNED OFF THE LEAKAGE STOPS WITHIN SHORT TIME. I GOT AWARE OF THE DEFECT DUE TO THE STRONG GASOLINE SMELL AFTER STOPPING AND GETTING OFF THE VEHICLE. I INVESTIGATED AND SAW GASOLINE DROPPING TO THE GROUND BETWEEN THE REAR WHEELS. THE FACT THAT THE FUEL IS RUNNING OVER THE EXHAUST TUBE MADE ME GROUND THE VEHICLE IMMEDIATELY FOR SAFETY REASONS. ALTHOUGH I NEED THIS VEHICLE I DECIDED TO KEEP IT GROUNDED DUE TO THE HIGH RISK THAT THE GASOLINE GETS IGNITED BY THE HOT EXHAUST TUBE.
