Approximately 8,600 model-year 2016-19 Audi TT roadsters and coupes are being recalled due to issues with the fuel tank. In the event of a crash, the fuel tank may become damaged by the fuel tank heat shield bracket, potentially leaking fuel and increasing the risk of a fire.
Audi manufacturer Volkswagen will begin notifying owners on April 10. Owners can call the automaker at 800-893-5298 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will install a protective cap on the fuel tank heat shield bracket.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
