Among the 42 recalls the NHTSA has announced this June comes news of the following:

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Audi”) has recalled an estimated 1,646 model year 2019 Audi e-tron Vehicles. Moisture can enter the high-voltage battery system through a faulty seal on the charging socket.

According to the NHTSA, moisture in the high-voltage system can cause a short-circuit, increasing the risk of fire. If warning lights appear along with the message “Electrical system: fault,” immediately stop driving the vehicle, park outdoors away from structures, do not charge the vehicle, and contact Audi Roadside Assistance at 1-800-411-9988 to have the vehicle towed.

Audi will notify registered owners and dealers will install a new seal and, as necessary, replace the affected system components, free of charge. Notices informing owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed in June 2019. Remedy parts are expected to become available in August 2019. Owners may contact Audi’s customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Audi’s designation for this recall is 93E8.
