On Saturday, Volkswagen AG said they’re recalling 189,490 Tiguan small sport utility vehicles in North America.

The German car company explained it’s due to potential stalling issues that can happen when there’s reduced fuel pump performance and pressure.

They add that no accidents or injuries have been reported.

The recall is set to begin later this month, where dealers will install electronic control module software at no cost.

Approximately 38,101 of the affected cars are said to have been sold in Canada.
