Vehicles Affected: Approximately 143,000 model-year 2009-12 Audi Q5 and 2007-12 Q7 SUVs equipped with gasoline engines

The Problem: The fuel-cap flange may crack, allowing fuel to leak and increasing the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source.

The Fix: Dealers will clean the pump flange and install a butyl rubber band to protect the pump for free.

What Owners Should Do: Audi manufacturer Volkswagen will begin notifying owners in early November and will send a second notification later when parts become available. Owners can call the automaker at 800-253-2834 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
