Volkswagen of America is recalling 151,389 Tiguan SUVs due to the possibility of stalling.

No accidents or injuries have been reported. The problem is with fuel pumps on some models from 2009 to 2014. Gas bubbles may form in the fuel system when winterized fuel is used in warmer months or warmer areas, which could lead to the car stalling.

Volkswagen is notifying all owners of the vehicles about the recall. Dealers are installing revised software in the cars to fix this issue.
