Audi recalls 3.3 lakh cars in Germany over electrical issues

  •  

Yesterday, we reported that Audi had recalled 52,000 cars sold in the US and Canada over fuel line leaks. Now, there have been reports of yet another recall. Audi is recalling 3.3 lakh cars in Germany over possible faulty electrical connections for the auxiliary heater, which could cause a fire.

The affected models include the Audi A4, A5, A5 Cabriolet and Q5 SUV built between April 2011 and May 2015. An Audi spokesperson told the media that some customers had reported a burning smell in their cars but there had been no fires or damage. This prompted the carmaker to investigate the issue, resulting in the aforementioned models being recalled. 

As is the case with most recalls, owners of the affected cars can expect to receive a notification from Audi and their local authorized dealer to bring their vehicles in for repairs. However, Audi hasn't revealed a specific time frame for this. The repairs will be done free of charge.
