Volkswagen Recalls 2006 - 2007 Passats
VW is recalling approximately 62,000 2006 and 2007 model year Passat sedans and wagons because of two different faults.
2006 Passats may have a faulty wiper blade that can fail in excessive rain, exactly when it would be most needed.
2006 and 2007 Passats equipped with the 2.0-liter turbo engine may have faulty brake lines that can fracture and disconnect in cold temperatures. In affected vehicles, this would result in a driver having to push harder on the brakes, while the car would also need a larger braking area before it comes to a stop.
Letters will be sent to owners in January with instructions to contact a local dealer for inspection and repairs.
