Will My VW Be Recalled?


Many owners VW Turbo Diesel models (TDI) will likely to be recalled, as confirmed by The Environmental Protection Agency. The looming recall is due to VW’s recent emissions scandal. The issue has left owners of Volkswagen vehicles wondering if their car is affected and what they can do about it.

The automakers cheated on the emissions test claiming the TDI models (including Jetta, Beetle, Passat, and Golf) were clean diesel. They weren’t clean at all.

Unfortunately, these vehicles do not meet emission requirements. Owners of Volkswagen TDI models are left with many questions on how to proceed after discovering the vehicle they own does not live up to the promises they were made upon purchase.

Which Volkswagen Models Will Be Affected by the Recall?

Not all models will be required to undergo changes. There are currently no known issues with the VW models that take regular unleaded gasoline. Many of the Turbo Diesel models (also known as the TDI line), however, will be subjected to recall requirements. Owners of these models will likely have no choice but to sacrifice the performance they’ve enjoyed.

The following vehicles are likely to be part of the VW recall:

  • VW Beetle 2.0L TDI 2009-2015
  • VW Golf 2.0L TDI 2009-2015
  • VW Jetta 2.0L TDI 2009-2015
  • VW Passat 2.0L TDI 2014-2015
  • Audi A3 2.0L TDI 2009-2015

Will the Recall Affect the Performance of My VW?

Fortunately, your TDI model’s safety (aside from pollutants) is not an issue. It is still safe to drive your car around. The problem is that automakers advertised that these particular models are in compliance with EPA requirements for emitting clean diesel.

Even if this is not a safety issue, you were fooled into purchasing a vehicle under false advertisement. Some of the VW TDI model’s were even listed in the Top 10 best gas mileages for fuel economy. Your MPG is expected to suffer significantly once the changes have been implemented.

When Will Be The Recall Be Issued?

  • There is an indefinite timeline on when TDI models will be recalled.
  • EPA still has not fully confirmed the recall.
  • If there is a recall, the repairs may be for the software, hardware, or even both.
  • EPA requires VW to remedy the noncompliance. If the recall is confirmed, there will be approximately 11 million diesel vehicles recalled, world wide.
