Audi recalling cars due to Fire Safety Concerns

Share

Audi is recalling over 340,000 vehicles due to a faulty coolant pump that may lead to a fire under the hood.

The company in 2016 rolled out a software update to switch off coolant pumps that have become blocked, theoretically preventing the pumps from becoming overheated and causing fires.

A news release states that all of the vehicles listed have 2-Liter turbocharged engines.

The recalled vehicles include: certain 2013-2017 Audi A5 Cabriolet, A5 Sedan and Audi Q5 vehicles; 2012-2015 Audi A6 vehicles; 2013-2016 Audi A4 Sedan and A4 all-road vehicles.

The same models were part of a recall previous year. Audi says that the coolant pumps are vulnerable to moisture and are capable of causing an electric short, or debris blockage from the cooling system.

The automaker has received reports of fires, an Audi spokesperson told The Associated Press. The spokesman said on Tuesday that redesigned parts would be ready by the end of this year between November to December and it will be available to the dealers afterward.
