Default Audi Recalls Nearly 75,000 Vehicles Due to Fire Risk

No further details at this time...Looks like 'some' D4's are affected.

Default Gas-line

Had my gas line replaced 3 weeks ago. Must be from that recall.

I just received something in the mail from Audi....
I assumed it was what I had fixed back in the summer of 2018, the fuel line pump or something?

Is this not the same?

EDIT: Just spoke with a local dealer, indeed another recall. Booked in on the 19th to get it figured out. Fingers crossed for the R8 loaner car......

I think that was a different recall for a similar problem. I don't think my vehicle was included at the time. The newer recall includes 2016 model year cars, the previous version only went to 2015.

Previous thread from summer 2018 is here: https://www.audiworld.com/forums/a8-...a8-s8-2953558/

Got my notice last week and threw it away because I thought it was the same repair. Looks like I have to call the dealer soon...

Is this for gas only engines? Or are diesels affected also?

Thank you!

Edit: I guess the answer to that question is no. No open recalls for my vehicle at this time.
