FRANKFURT (Reuters) -- Volkswagen said it is recalling 91,000 Passat sedans in the U.S. to fix insufficient cable insulation that could cause short circuits.
The cars were assembled between 2012 and 2014, VW said. Vehicles in other markets were not affected by the fault, a spokesman said on Friday.
The embattled German carmaker, which has for months been working on a fix for the nearly 600,000 diesel vehicles on U.S. roads caught up in the company's massive emissions-cheating scandal, has had a string of recalls lately due to various technical glitches.
On Monday, VW recalled nearly 5,600 electric e-Golf cars in the U.S. to address a battery problem that can cause stalling.
In the last few weeks, VW has recalled 177,000 Passat sedans across the world due to a potential electrical fault, and also recalled more than 800,000 VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne SUVs to fix a pedal mechanism.
