RECALL ALERT: Audi

Audi Recalls A6, S6 and RS6 for Possible Fuel Leak

By Jim Sharifi


Posted: May 10, 2011



If you own or are thinking about buying an Audi with a more than a few miles on it, this recall might affect you. Audi’s parent company, Volkswagen is recalling 2001-04 A6, 2002-03 S6 and 2033 RS6 models because a potential issue with the fuel system could lead to a fuel leak.

The problem in affected cars is linked to the fuel tank rollover valve. “The aging of the plastic material in the fuel tank rollover valve combined with bending stress from the aluminum ventilation line to the rollover valve nipple may lead to cracking of the nipple,” says NHTSA. “If this happens, a fuel leak may result.”

So how many Audis are affected? Autoblog reports, “Up to 5,992 vehicles are potentially affected by this action.” Owners can expect the recall to begin in June. In the meantime, owners can call Audi directly at 1-800-822-2834 if they have questions.
