Audi is recalling nearly 46,000 vehicles due to a fuel sensor issue. Included in the recall are model-year 2021 RS6 Avant and RS7 sedan, 2020-2021 A6 Allroad wagon, S6 and S7 sedans, and 2019-2021 A6 and A7 sedans. The fuel level sender located inside the vehicle’s gas tank may get stuck on the ventilation pipe, causing the dashboard display to show an incorrect gas level and remaining range level. An inaccurate fuel reading may cause the engine to stall due to a lack of fuel, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 13, 2022. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 800-253-2834 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the fuel level sender.
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.
