Default Q5/SQ5 Master brake cylinder recall

Allegedly will only affect 5 vehicles, but it effects 12k+ Q5/SQ5. NHTSA/Audi search wonít reflect it as the search engines arenít undated yet.

Main takeaways, it effects July18-Nov18 Q5, and July18-Oct18 SQ5

edit: good luck getting an appointment, I was told Iíd have to pay a $185 diagnostic fee... definitely not allowable, but theyíre morons

The Safety Recall Report says that the notification to both the dealer and the customer will go out on June 7. A couple of paragraphs above that under "Remedy," it says that the affected cars will be notified.
Is it possible that your dealer doesn't even know about the pending recall yet? My car is also in that group and I'll just wait til the june 7 date.

Mine was on the list (8/2018 production date). I received the letter last week, and Audi Dallas has already inspected my vehicle. The dealership was very responsive and professional.

It seems the exact quote from the Report is
Audi will not offer a reimbursement plan under this recall.
I thought this odd so searched for the phrase and it show up with a lot of Audi Recalls. On many it spells out "This work will be performed for customers free of charge." I presume that is true for this one as well even though it doesn't specify. My guess is that the dealers don't get reimbursed for this. Looks like Audi calls the shots.

in light of dieselgate, i was thinking "reimbursement" was related to the owner being reimbursed for the whole car if an issue/recall was so profound. i was guessing some legal goons came up with that language so it was explicit that Audi would not be reimbursing a customer for a certain recall/issue. this thinking being a bit extreme, it is more likely something that Audi were trying to convey that got lost when it was translated into Engrishes. someone who works for Audi or a dealer will know.

I was reading it as if Audi would be the only ones who could do the inspection/work. They would not reimburse any 3rd parties for anything related to this recall. Years ago on a Subaru outback recall for a bad alternator, they let me have the work done by my local garage, and reimbursed me - and that was at 92,000 miles. I was interpreting Audi's comment as not allowing that kind of situation.
