Audi, the luxury car division of Volkswagen, announced in late January 2017 that it was recalling nearly 600,000 cars and SUVs in the U.S. because of two separate and potentially deadly defects.
Specifically, the automaker told federal authorities that 343,000 vehicles equipped with 2.0l Turbo FSI engines have an electric coolant pump that can become blocked with cooling system debris. As a result, the pump can overheat and cause a fire.
The recall involves the:
- Audi A5, model years 2013-2017
- Audi A5 Cabriolet, model years 2013-2017
- Audi Q5 SUVs, model years 2013-2017
- Audi Allroad, model years 2013-2016
- Audi A4, model years 2013-2016
- Audi A6, model years 2012-2015
Separately, Audi is recalling 234,000 Q5 SUVs, model years 2011-2017, because a sunroof drainage system defect allows water to soak into the area of the side air bag inflators. As a result, the inflators could rupture and send metal fragments into the vehicle.
