Volkswagen is recalling over 49,000 model-year 2019-2021 Audi Q8 and 2020-2021 Audi Q7 SUVs due to a faulty fuel pump. A component inside the fuel pump may break, causing the fuel pump to fail. Fuel pump failure can cause an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on September 16, 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 pump.
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.
