Audi Recalling 1.16 Million Vehicles

Volkswagen AG’s luxury unit Audi said on Tuesday that it was recalling 1.16 million vehicles worldwide because of concerns that an electric coolant pump could overheat or short-circuit from moisture within the pump and pose a fire risk. Audi told US regulators the recall covers some 2013-2017 Audi A5 Cabriolet, A5 coupe and Audi Q5 vehicles, 2012-2015 Audi A6 vehicles and 2013-2016 Audi A4 Sedan and A4 Allroad vehicles with 2.0-liter Turbo FSI engines, Automotive News reported. A spokesman for Audi in Germany, Udo Ruegheimer, said the recall covered 1.16 million vehicles worldwide. Audi said the pump can become blocked with debris from the cooling system, adding that there had been no reports of injuries or crashes related to the issue. Dealers will replace the pumps but the company did not say when parts will become available. This is the second Audi recall related to the pump issue. In January 2017, Audi recalled the same group of vehicles in the United States to update the software so that the power supply to the coolant pump would be deactivated if the pump became blocked with debris.
