— Volkswagen is recalling six model year 2019 Atlas SUVs to replace fuel tanks with suction jets that may have been welded in the incorrect positions.
The welding problem can allow gas to leak, or the Atlas may stall due to uneven fuel distribution. Any leaking fuel near an ignition source has a chance of starting a fire.
The 2019 VW Atlas recall is expected to begin October 11, 2019. Volkswagen didn't say how long it will take a dealer to replace the fuel tank.
Affected owners may call 800-893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 20BU.
