    They also say the pressure could just cause the plates to bend but it doesn't really inspire much stopping confidence either way. All the affected vehicles are from the 2020 model year.…

    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.

    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.…

    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.

    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.…

    The 2nd generation A5 has a new 7-speed dual-clutch that helps get the car from 0-60 is 5.6 seconds.

    But before dropping that accelerator to the floor, you’ll want to get the head-curtain airbags fixed.

    The automaker says the cars were built with head curtain airbag assemblies that may fail to unfold properly in a crash … Audi says the curtain airbags can get caught on the trim of the A-pillars due to excess fabric on the airbags.

    If your parking brake is engaged in an emergency stopping situation, it probably means you’re having a bad day.

    But thanks to a software glitch in the 2016-17 Audi Q3, it could get a whole lot worse.

    According to Audi, there is a software error in the gateway control unit that causes the brake lights to fail. The automaker discovered the problem during internal testing in March 2016 and started working on a software fix.”…
