Vehicles Affected: Approximately 9,000 model-year 2010-13 Audi A8 luxury sedans manufactured between May 15, 2010, and May 14, 2012
The Problem: A coolant valve may leak, allowing coolant to enter the engine control module; this could cause a loss of power or an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the coolant valve and inspect for coolant that has leaked through the electrical connector for free.
What Owners Should Do: Audi manufacturer Volkswagen will begin notifying owners Oct. 19. Owners can call Audi at 800-253-2834, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
