According to Transport Canada, on some Volvo vehicles, the secondary clutch disengagement switch may have been omitted during vehicle assembly or, in some instances, removed during servicing. As such, primary switch failure would cause the automated manual transmission’s clutch to remain engaged when the brakes are applied. This could increase stopping distances, possibly resulting in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury.

Audi A1 and A3 Vehicles Recall [Australia]

Australia ACCC RecallAustralia/Canberra: Audi Australia P/L recalls some Audi A1 and A3 Vehicles due to sudden power loss hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/mzszl

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1048989

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports this recall applies to Audi A1 (8X) and A3 (8P) vehicles manufactured between 1st July 2008  to 31st July 2011.

According to the ACCC, certain Audi A1 and A3 Vehicles can experience electrolysis in the gearbox control unit. If this occurs, it can lead to a short circuit and blow the gearbox fuse.  If this fuse blows while the vehicle is in motion, however, a sudden loss of power at the wheels could in certain circumstances occur while the vehicle is being driven. This may pose a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users. All other functions of the vehicle (steering, braking, etc.) remain fully active.
