Audi A8

Where there's leaking fuel, there's the possibility of fire.


The fuel in your vehicle is generally pretty good at abiding where it's supposed to, but if that doesn't happen, bad things can happen, hence Audi's recent remember.



Audi has issued a recall for approximately 9,000 examples of the 2013-2016 Audi A8 and the higher-performance S8. The affected vehicles carry different structure appointments and the recall is not VIN-sequential. The question was eventually ameliorated on the assembly line.





The defect comes from the fuel system. Harmonizing to the automaker, the high-pressure fuel pump's quantity row might become porous over time. This can cause a fuel aroma to enter the hut, and worse, it can create a fuel leakage. Fuel leakage in the fact that there are hot or a spark can become an ardor peril.


Audi first discovered the imperfection in June 2018. While it has experimented and investigated from June 2018 to Jan. 2019, the automaker said in documents submitted to NHTSA that these experiments" still did not specify understanding of the root campaign ." However, during that time, it did discover legal remedies that can, in Audi's messages, "[ ensure] the stability of the fuel quantity row throughout the lifecycle of the vehicle ."

For the remedy, Audi technicians will add fuel stress damp in the low-spirited stress fuel quantity, which is located in the gas barrel. Those who have already paid Audi for the reparation will be reimbursed. Vehicles produced after a certain point once contain the fuel damp, too. Owners should be notified via first-class mail from the very beginning of late March.
