(Reuters) – Volkswagen is recalling more than 261,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to issues with a suction jet pump seal inside the fuel tank, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said on Thursday.

The recall includes certain front-wheel drive 2015-2020 Audi A3 Sedan, 2019-2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI, 2018 Golf Sportwagen vehicles, among others.

Dealers will replace the suction pump on the affected vehicles, free of charge.
