4/22/2011 - John Maattala
I own a 2011 VW Jetta TDI 6600 miles Bought in feb 2011
Yesturday April 21, the Jetta developed a fuel leak in the engine compartment. upon having the jetta inspected at the dealer he said that the fuel rail line stainless steel was crack.

My question is what caused it to crack faulty material? or what? I hope VW of America will look into this The fuel was spraying all over the engine a possible a fire hazard

Do you drive a 2011 VW JETTA?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
