Last week, Volkswagen announced that it would begin recalling 2011-2012 Jetta sedans in November. After receiving numerous complaints of people burning their legs on protruding exhauste pipes, Volkswagen began an investigation and decided that it would recall the vehicles and replace the stainless steel exhaust tips free of charge.
A total of 30,294 Jettas are affected by the recall. The automaker claims that on some of the vehicles had stainless steel exhaust tips that were installed after importation. The exhaust tips protrude out further than original factory-installed pipes, increasing the chance of someone inadvertently brushing against them.
