The agency has received 16 reports that the throttle on the cars, made by Volkswagen AG , can get stuck open even when the driver stops pressing on the accelerator. Six complaints said the problem happened more than once, and four complaints said the only way to stop the car was to turn off the engine.

All of the complaints were from drivers living in Northeastern states.
