Oct 07, 2016

Volkswagen AG is recalling about 281,500 Volkswagen and Audi brand vehicles in the United States in three separate recalls, each due to fuel leaks but with different causes, according to a regulatory filing on Friday.

No one has been injured as a result of these issues, a Volkswagen spokeswoman said on Friday. While the fuel leaks could increase the risk of fire, there have been no fires reported, she said.
