VOLKSWAGEN RECALLS GOLF, GTI AND JETTA VEHICLES

 VOLKSWAGEN RECALLS GOLF, GTI AND JETTA VEHICLES
 AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Volkswagen United


States, Inc. today announced the voluntary recall of approximately 650,000 Volkswagen vehicles to correct the vehicle's heat exchanger system. The vehicles involved are 1985 through early-1990 Golf, GTI, and Jetta models.
 The heat exchanger, which is part of the engine's cooling system and is located underneath the instrument panel, generates the heat used to warm the vehicle's interior. If the engine overheats, the heat exchanger could be damaged and rupture allowing hot engine coolant to enter the passenger compartment with the potential of causing injury. In a few cases, drivers have incurred skin injuries due to this failure.
 Volkswagen United States will notify owners of all affected vehicles by letter in early May and offer to repair their vehicles free of charge.
 Owners who have experienced engine overheating in the past or experience overheating now, indicated by the coolant temperature warning light, or who are otherwise concerned about the safe performance of the cooling system of their vehicles, should immediately contact their Volkswagen dealer for an inspection and any necessary repair.
 Late-model 1990 and 1991, and subsequent model-year Golfs, GTIs and Jettas are not affected by this recall.
