Coolant issue sparks Audi recalls

More than 2200 Audi vehicles recalled in Australia…

Owners of some selected Audi A4, A5 and A6 models can expect a letter from Audi Australia regarding a recall to fix a possibly serious cooling system issue.

The recall affects Audi vehicles fitted with the 2.0 litre TFSI engines and all the recalled vehicles were manufactured from the beginning of 2011 to the end of 2016.

Being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) the recall notice says on affected vehicles foreign particles in the coolant may lead to a blockage in the additional coolant pump.

This could cause the coolant pump to overheat.

What are the hazards?

In isolated cases, if not repaired, the overheated coolant pump may catch fire.

Owners will be contacted by direct mail and asked to contact their nearest Audi Dealer to arrange for an inspection and update of the software on the engine control unit.

This action will adjust the activation and diagnosis of the additional coolant pump.

More info is also available from Audi Australia on 1800 50 AUDI (2834).
