Volkswagen Recalling More Than 240,000 Audi Q5 and Q7 Vehicles
A fuel pump flange on the affected vehicles could crack, allowing fuel to leak
Volkswagen Group of America (VW) is recalling 240,487 model year 2013-2017 Audi Q5 and 2013-2017 Audi Q7 vehicles.
These gasoline-powered vehicles have a fuel pump flange that may crack, allowing fuel to leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
Audi will notify owners of the recalled Q5 and Q7 vehicles. These notifications are expected to begin on July 2, 2017. Audi dealers will then replace the fuel pump flange if cracks are present. Flanges that do not have cracks will have a protective film applied. These repairs will be performed free of charge to vehicle owners.
For additional information on this recall, contact Audi customer service by calling (800) 253-2834. Volkswagen's reference number for this recall is 20Z8.
Note: This recall is an expansion of a previous recall (16V-660).
