    Volkswagen has discovered some issues in the rear suspension systems of its Hatchback car " Beetles" and sedan car Volkswagen Jetta. The company has recalled nearly 500,000 cars in the U.S. The company has said that this just a safety recall.
    In the U.S. it is recalling 400,602 Jetta models produced between 2011 and 2013 and 41,663 Beetle and Beetle Convertible models made between 2012 and 2013 in the U.S. A part called the rear trailing arm, which connects the rear axle to the body of the car and provides stability while driving, could become damaged in the event of a rear collision. If not repaired, the arm could "fracture suddenly" and "this could lead to a crash,"Volkswagen said, adding that no injuries or accidents related to the issue have been reported.
