Audi Recalling 1.2 Million Vehicles Due to Fire Risk

Audi re-recalls 343K vehicles to replace coolant pumps

The Audi Q5 from 2013-17 is part of a recall of 1.2 million vehicle globally due to a potential fire hazard.

According to the recent news, Audi is calling back more than 1.2 million cars and SUVs worldwide due to some problem in the electric coolant pumps that might cause a fire in the auto.

The campaign affects 2.0T engines used in the 2013-2017 A5, 2012-2015 A6, 2013-2016 A4 and 2013-2017 Q5.

The issue lies with a faulty electric coolant pump in the affected vehicles that may overheat or short-circuit when it comes in contact with road debris or moisture.

Certain 2013-2016 model years A4 Allroads are among the Audi's affected in this recall.

It's fun to see that, because he can represent, you know, the world as a whole, as they try to move forward. While we aren't quite ready to show them just yet, I did want to mention a couple examples.

The Volkswagen luxury brand stated in US government documents that the pumps can become blocked with cooling system debris, or moisture in the pump can cause an electrical short.

The same Audi vehicles were recalled in 2017, prompting dealers to do a software update. But the company says in documents posted Tuesday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that did not resolve the problem as pump problems continued.

Dealers will replace the pumps without any cost to the owners.

Owners will receive a letter notifying them of the recall starting in June.
