(autoinsidernews) - Volkswagen has announced safety recalls to address two issues in some 2006 and 2007 model year Passat sedans, and in some 2007 model year Passat wagons. Some of the affected 2006 model year Passat vehicles have a wiper motor that may fail during heavy rain due to moisture entering the wiper motor. If this happens, it could result in reduced visibility, reports Trend.
The second recall affects some 2.0T 2006 and 2007 Passat sedans and some 2007 Passat wagons. The affected vehicles may have a power brake vacuum line that may fracture and become disconnected at low ambient temperatures. If this happens, the brake power assist can become inoperative, and the driver will experience increased effort to apply the brake and possible increased stopping distance.
