VW RECALLS CABRIOLET AND SCIROCCO VEHICLES

 VW RECALLS CABRIOLET AND SCIROCCO VEHICLES
 AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Volkswagen United


States, Inc. today announced that it will notify within two weeks owners of 1987 through 1989 and some early production 1990 Cabriolet models, and 1987/88 Scirocco models to take their cars to an authorized Volkswagen dealer to have the fuel tank unit checked and replaced, if necessary. Approximately 51,000 vehicles are involved.
 A spokesperson for the company said that the fuel tank could develop a hairline crack at a small section of a seam flange weld at the rear of the tank. Should this happen, fuel could seep out which could result in fire in the event of a rear-end collision. A tank found with a crack will be replaced free of charge.
 There have been no reports of accidents or injuries in connection with a crack in the fuel tank.
