Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,600 model-year 2019 Audi e-tron electric SUVs
The Problem: A potentially faulty seal may allow moisture to enter the battery compartment, which could lead to a short circuit or, in extreme cases, to a fire.
Audi said no such incidents have been reported globally.
The Fix: A remedy for this issue will be available in August. Should a yellow battery warning light appear, owners are advised to stop and park the vehicle in the open, do not charge and contact roadside assistance to make arrangements to have the vehicle towed to the dealer for inspection and service.
What Owners Should Do: Audi has begun notifying owners. Owners can call the automaker at 800-253-2834, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
