Volkswagen AG recalled 300,000 of its Passat sedans worldwide Friday to fix a string of faults, including brake problems.

Owners of the cars, built in 2005 and the first half of 2006, risk windshield wiper failure; diesel-powered models can also develop a fuel leak; and a 200-horsepower model can develop brake problems.

Volkswagen ruled out the danger of total brake failure.

It said fixing the problems takes about an hour per vehicle. It didn't say how much the recall will cost the company.
