Volkswagen has requested its dealerships to stop selling four vehicles starting immediately.
The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta, Passat, Beetle and Beetle Convertible have been issued a mandatory stop-sale order for a transmission oil cooler leak issue. The affected vehicles are all powered by a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine mated to an automatic transmission. The German automaker has asked its dealers to not sell, lease or dealer-trade any of the vehicles and if a dealer is using the vehicle as a demo, it should stop immediately.
An inspection and repair procedure is being formulated and the required parts for a fix will be available within the next week. It is unclear whether a recall will be issued, but it is likely.
