Volkswagen (VLKAY) is recalling nearly 281,000 CC and Passat sedans and wagons in the U.S. over faulty fuel pumps that may fail and cause the vehicles to stall without warning, the AP reports.

The German automaker's recall covers CC models from 2009 through 2016, and Passat sedan and wagon models from 2006 through 2010.

Volkswagen has warned that the fuel pump control computer can lose electrical power, which could prevent gas from flowing and thus cause engines to stall. The issue can also cause the fuel pump to stay operational even after the car is off.
