Thousands of VW Amarok pick-up trucks recalled

  • Potential fuel line leak issue
  • Affects 4,000 trucks in UK
  • Part of a worldwide recall

Around 4,000 Volkswagen Amarok pick-up trucks are being recalled in the UK due to concerns over potential leaking fuel lines.

It’s part of a wider recall of 2.6 million VW vehicles worldwide owing to a variety of mechanical concerns, one of the biggest recalls in the company’s history.

The problem affects Amaroks fitted with the 2.0-litre TDI engine. They must be taken to workshops to allow protection to be fitted to the fuel lines to protect them from accidental damage. Volkswagen will inform owners if their car is affected, although if in doubt owners are advised to contact their local dealers for advice.
