Leaking Fuel Injectors Recalled

You know the old saying “what you don’t know can’t hurt you”? It’s one of my Uncle’s favorites, along with “don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.” I still don’t know what a gift horse is or why I’d look it in the mouth, but I digress. Anyway, it turns out some things you don’t know can hurt you and here’s one example.

Earlier this year, Audi recalled 26,000 cars with fuel injectors that leak. Anytime there’s a fuel leak near an ignition source, very bad things can happen. The recall was announced in January and should have begun on March 10th, 2015, but I wanted to make sure you knew about it … because I care.

Audi says the fuel injector valve is out of position while driving in the following cars:

  • 2011-12 Audi S4
  • 2011-12 Audi S5
  • 2011-12 Audi Q7
  • 2012 Audi A6
  • 2012 VW Touareg Hybrid
  • 2012-2013 Audi A7

If you haven’t received your recall notice or had your car fixed yet, you can call your local dealer or contact Audi at 800-822-2834 and refer to recall number 24AP (VW owners call 800-893-5298 and use recall 24BK).
