Volkswagen says it is recalling more than 26,000 new 2014 cars in the united states because faulty O-Ring seals can leak transmission fluid that could spark a fire. The recall affects the model year 2014 Jetta, Beetle convertible and Passat with a 1.8T engine and torque converter. VW said the recall is beginning this week and dealers will replace the O-Ring seals in the transmission oil cooler. VW also said it is unaware of any crashes or fires related to the issue.
