VW Recalling 30,000 Jettas
Volkswagen recently announced the recall of more than 30,000 Jetta sedans from the 2011 and 2012 model years because the tailpipes can stick out too far and burn people.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website says that stainless steel exhaust pipe tips installed where the cars were imported can stick out farther than the factory-installed tailpipes.
When the tips are hot, people could be burned on the legs.
Volkswagen reportedly received complaints of burns in July and began investigating.
VW dealers will check the cars to see if the exhaust tips are too long and replace them free of charge if necessary.
