DETROIT -- Volkswagen AG is recalling 39,583 Jetta sedans in the United States because of a possible fuel leak that could trigger a fire, U.S. safety regulators said on Thursday.
"A fuel supply line clamp located in the engine compartment may not be positioned properly and could cause a fuel leak," the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its Web site.
The vehicles involved in the recall are from the 2005 model year, NHTSA said.
Separately, NHTSA said Ford Motor Co. is recalling 10,061 Expedition and Navigator SUVs from the 2006 model year because tires on the driver's side may be damaged, which could lead to a tread separation and crash.
The damage was caused by a sharp part on the manufacturer's assembly line, NHTSA said.
Also, Toyota Motor Co. is recalling 11,592 2005-model year Tacoma pickup trucks in the United States due to defective seat belt buckle sensors, NHTSA said.
