Volkswagen has temporarily halted sales of about 25,000 cars in the US because of a fire risk.

The affected vehicles include the current model of the Chattanooga made Passat, the Jetta, Beetle, and Beetle Convertible.

All are equipped with a one-point-eight liter engine and automatic transmission.

Volkswagen says a faulty o-ring can cause transmission fluid to leak - and could start a fire.

The automaker says no fires or crashes have been reported.

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified soon, and Volkswagen will replace the part for free.
