Audi is recalling over 1,000 vehicles because of quick connectors that are supposed to hold fuel supply lines in place aren't doing their job. The detached lines will stop supplying fuel to the crankshaft and start depositing it onto hot engine surfaces. When flammable liquid meets something as hot as an exhaust manifold, things happen. Things you don’t want.

More Details

  • The recall covers 1,100 model year 2018 Audi TT Roadster, TT Coupe, A3 Sedan and A3 Cabriolet vehicles.
  • These are the same connectors that led VW to recall the Golf R, so maybe VW should go back to the drawing board on this part?

The best way to find out what's wrong with a vehicle is from the people who drive them. Not only do owner complaints help us rank vehicles by reliability, but they're often used to spark class-action lawsuits and warranty extensions. Plus, they're a great way to vent.
