VW Recalls Thousands Of Cars
Volkswagon has recalled nearly 92,000 cars in the U.S. to fix mechanical problems.
According to the recall the cars have mechanical issues that can knock out the power-assisted brakes. The German automaker says a part in the camshaft can shear off, causing loss of vacuum in the power brakes.
And that could result in longer stopping distances or even a crash.
Although the issue was discovered after several reports of camshaft failures, the company says no injuries have been reported. They would not say if any accidents had happened however.
A fix of the issue isn't expected until the end of March. VW is telling owners to keep on driving the cars, but to make sure they report malfunctioning warning lights or other trouble to dealers.
According to NBC News, a spokesman is said to be checking on whether loaner cars would be available until repairs are completed.
