Volkswagen has recalled more than 30,000 Jetta sedans from the 2011 and 2012 model years because the tailpipes can stick out too far and burn people. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, stainless steel exhaust pipe tips installed at the point of importation can stick out farther than the factory-installed tailpipes. If the tips are hot, people could be burned on the legs. According to the agency, Volkswagen received complaints of burns in July and began investigating. Dealers will inspect the cars to see if the exhaust tips are too long and replace them free of charge if necessary.
