2012-2017 Audi A4, A4 Allroad, A5, A6 and Q5: Recall Alert

2017 Audi Q5

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 343,000 model-year 2013-17 Audi A5 cabriolets, A5 sedans and Q5 SUVs; model-year 2012-15 A6 cars; and model-year 2013-16 A4 sedans and A4 Allroad wagons — all equipped with turbocharged, direct-injected 2.0-liter engines

The Problem: An electric coolant pump can either become blocked with debris from the cooling system, causing it to overheat or short circuit from moisture within the pump, increasing the risk of a fire.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the pumps for free.

What Owners Should Do: Audi will begin notifying owners June 11; parts were not immediately available, so owners will receive a second notice once a remedy is available. Owners can call the automaker at 800-253-2834, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
