The cold-formed nuts of the high-pressure fuel lines may become loose from the male-threaded outlet connection of the gasoline direct injection fuel pump when subjected to vehicle loads, particularly during dynamic driving maneuvers commonly associated with track driving.
If the nut loosens, fuel may leak out. The fuel line is located near engine components that have high operating temperatures. If fuel is released near these components, thermal activity can result.
This model is affected by the recall:
(US: 164 vehicles /Germany: 15 vehicles)
