Additional information:

Among the sixteen (16) recalls the NHTSA has announced this December, comes news of the following:

Logo - VolkswagenVolkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”) has recalled an estimated 5,987 model year 2007-2012 Audi Q7 and 2009-2012 Audi Q5 vehicles, previously repaired under NHTSA recall 16V-660. These vehicles were previously repaired with an interim repair of installing butyl tape to the fuel pump flange, until replacement remedy parts became available.

According to the NHTSA, the butyl tape used in the previous repair may not, in fact, prevent fuel from leaking. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.

Volkswagen will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump flange and install butyl tape, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 31, 2018. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen’s designation for this recall is 20BJ.
