Audi Recalls 2,500 Vehicles

Just like Volkswagen announced a voluntary recall concerning 13,500 vehicles built between September 2008 and August 2009, German carmaker Audi has also initiated a voluntary recall that refers to 2,500 vehicles built within the same period of time.

The recall applies to Audi A3, Audi TT and Audi TT Roadster models and Audi says that the problem involves vehicles equipped with S tronic transmissions.

The notification released by the four-ring brand stated that “The recall applies to 2009 MY A3, TT and TT Roadster models equipped with S tronic transmissions during that production window. A very limited number of 2010 MY A3 cars equipped with S tronic transmissions are also affected. More than a quarter of the cars involved in the recall, or 667, are in dealer stock or at delivery ports. They will be inspected before sales to customers.”

The problem that was found with the S tronic transmission can cause some warning lamps in your dashboard to light up and in some cases, the transmission may shift into neutral, which could affect the driver if it happens when he overtakes another vehicle.

“Some customers with the affected vehicles have experienced illuminated warning lamps in the dashboard, and in rare instances, reported that the transmission went into neutral,”
Audi’s notification said.

Just as expected, the same solution is provided by both manufacturers. Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by Audi of America to schedule an appointment at their local dealer to have their vehicle inspected and repaired, if necessary, in the following weeks. Customers who have questions or concerns should contact the Audi Customer Relations Campaign Help Line at 1-800-253-AUDI (2834).
