Vehicles Affected: Approximately 343,000 model-year 2013-17 Audi A5 coupes, A5 cabriolets and Q5 SUVs; model-year 2013-16 Audi Allroad wagons and A4 sedans; and model-year 2012-15 A6 sedans
The Problem: The 2.0-liter turbocharged engines have an electric coolant pump that can be blocked with debris from the cooling system, resulting in the pump overheating and increasing the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Dealers will update the software so that the power supply to the coolant pump is deactivated if the pump becomes blocked with debris. Work will be done for free.
What Owners Should Do: Audi manufacturer Volkswagen will begin notifying owners Feb. 20. 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 your vehicle identification number and learn more.
