Volkswagen drivers may want to pay extra attention to this. Morethan 400 thousand VW gas- powered Passats are being recalled because of potential damage to a heat shield.
The model years are from 1999 to 2005.
VW says some automatic Passats may have an underbody heat shield that could be subject to damage.
Also, some with 1.8T engines have a fuel line that may need replacing.
Not only that, but some all-wheel drive passats will be inspected for valve damage.
