What is the Latest Audi Recall?
We expect the products that we buy to be safe for our use and consumption. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and sometimes the products we buy cause potential risks and safety hazards. When this occurs, it is common for the maker of the item to issue a recall to prevent injuries. One thing that is often recalled is motor vehicles. Recently, the automaker, Audi, issued a recall for some of their vehicles.
The recall comes after the discovery of potential fuel leaks in the engines of the vehicles. A portion of the fuel injection system of the vehicle can leak. If the fuel leaks and it makes contact with an ignition source in the engine, it has a potential to cause a fire in the engine.
The recall covers certain Audi vehicles. The vehicles included in the recall are:
- 2016-2018 A6 SUVs
- 2016-2018 A7 SUVs
- 2016-2018 Q7 SUVs
- 2015-2018 A8 Sedans
Documents released do not indicate that there have any engine fires reported. Additionally, the documents do not indicated any injuries having occurred from any engine fires.
The company plans to begin notifying owners of the vehicles affected by the recall in mid-March. The company will be notifying the owners by mail of the recall and how to get their vehicle repaired. Owners of the recalled vehicles will be able to take them to Audi dealerships, where they will replace the left and right fuel injector rails. After fixing these, the potential fire hazard should be averted. The dealers will do the replacements at no cost to the owners.
