Approximately 530 model-year 2020 Audi Q8 SUVs are being recalled because an insufficient weld on a transmission oil pipe may cause the vehicle to leak transmission fluid, causing slippery road conditions and increasing the risk of a crash.
Audi manufacturer Volkswagen began notifying owners on July 10. Owners can call the automaker at 800-253-2834 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the transmission oil pipe and replace it, if necessary.
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.
