Vehicles Affected: Approximately 3,594 model-year 2013-14 Audi S6 and S7 vehicles and approximately 1,120 A8 and S8 vehicles
The Problem: A manufacturing issue may cause certain model-year 2013-14 S6 and S7s equipped with 4.0-liter engines to leak fuel. This could lead to a fire.
In an unrelated recall, Audi is also recalling model-year 2013-2014 A8 and S8 vehicles equipped with a standard sunroof and manufactured between March 12 and July 15, 2013. The sunroof could shatter, increasing the risk of accident and injury.
Audi parent Volkswagen said it's unaware of any accidents related to either issue.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the affected fuel lines and sunroofs for free.
What Owners Should Do: Audi has already begun notifying owners affected by both recalls. Owners can call Audi at 800-822-2834 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
