1. A proposed class-action filed in the Easter District of NY is fed up with Audi (and it's parent company Volkswagen Group) denying warranty claims for leaky, panoramic sunroofs.

    The lawsuit lists a long line of TSBs that talk about problems with the sunroof drainage systems. They even give dealerships tips on how to repair the issue on unsold inventory, but they won't honor warranty claims asking for the same repair.…

  2. The 2018 A3 and RS 3 have been recalled because some of them are missing the latching pins that hold the rear center headrest in place.

    Audi says their tier 3 supplier mixed properly latched headrests with unlatched ones. The recall affects over 20,000 cars worldwide and is already underway.

  3. Audi has been sued for installing noisy brakes in the 2015-2018 Q7, but the automaker says the suit is all squeal and no bite.

    The plaintiff points to three service bulletins as evidence that Audi is aware of the issue, but in their motion to dismiss the automaker says brakes are subject to wear and tear and that noise doesn’t always represent a defect.…

  4. Audi and Volkswagen are recalling 119,000 vehicles to replace dangerous Takata airbag inflators.

    This campaign is part of an industry-wide effort involving more than a dozen automakers and 1.7 million vehicles. The chemical inside of Takata airbag inflators can become unstable over time, leading to violent and sometimes deadly airbag deployments. The recall is for both driver and passenger side inflators in the 2017 R8 and 2016-2017 TT.

  5. 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.…

  6. The head restraint guide that keeps it attached to the seat frame may not have been properly welded in 169 Audi and VW vehicles.

    Certain 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf, Golf R, Audi A3 Sedan and RS3 vehicles that need the rear seat frames replaced will need their rear seat frames replaced.…

  7. Audi may have forgotten to properly tighten an airbag module’s mounting screws, prompting a recall in a tiny number of vehicles. Twelve!

    The affected vehicles are the 2018 A5 Sportback and 2017-2018 A4 allroad. At this point it’s unclear if they’ll need to recall all sold vehicles to find the unlucky 12.

    The recall should begin on January 26, 2019.

  8. A couple years ago the 2007-2012 Q7 and 2009-2012 Q5 were recalled to fix leaking fuel pump flanges.

    At the time, there weren't enough replacement flanges to go around. In a let's-see-if-this-works move Audi slapped some butyl tape around the existing flanges to prevent future leaks. It didn't.

    Turns out if the flange has already been exposed to outside contaminates, covering it in tape will only prolong the inevitable leak. About 6,000 vehicles are being recalled again, hopefully this time for a more permanent repair.…
