I really hope they didn't actually hit something while parking, the car has a multiple cameras and sensors. Totally unrelated, there was a Korean children's CD in the player when we turned it on.
I would want a meeting with the dealership's GM and ask to involve AoA...it will be better if the dealership helps with this

They delivered my Q7 today with not so much as a service write up to explain what they did. I had to play phone tag for 2 days to speak with the service advisor and get an explanation of what happened to my car. A bolt/nut? along the fuel line was over torqued causing a fracture that grew as it was driven. OR it was a faulty recall piece shipped from Audi. I have run out of steam emailing and calling AoA with no response and dealing with this dealership. Still no response from AoA so I'll assume my experience is just status quo. I'm pacified to have the car back at this point but far from how I expected to feel buying a "premium" brand. Buying my GTI from a VW dealer was an exponentially better experience. VW let me down when they stopped exporting the Taureg to the U.S.

My recall was finished Friday along with the camera software update and 20,000 mile service. No fuel smell and no other issues. The SQ5 loaner was great too.

Mine is 2018 Q7 but I haven't got the recall.
Does it take turns to call the owner?

Got 2017 Q7 3.0 and car fax mentioned this recall and they easily did the recall fix before delivering the car Guess I'm lucky when I bought since if I bought a couple months earlier sounds like would have had the issue with a fix available..

You can check for recalls and TSB's for your vehicle on the Audi website, just type in your VIN..

I checked my VIN and it said there is no current recall?
Doesn't 2018 Q7 have fuel rail issue?
Anyone else has 2018 model but got the recall?

When googling audi fuel recall, the first result I see is Consumer Reports: https://www.consumerreports.org/car-...g-fuel-system/

That says, "2016 to 2018 Q7 SUVs built from Aug. 30, 2015, through Jan. 24, 2018." If your car was built between those dates and you are sure it hasn't already been fixed on your car, then yes it looks like you would need it fixed too. But you can check your vin here to confirm: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls. Audi maybe slower to updating their own recall notification site perhaps?

I got my car at 12/2017 so it seems should get the recall, but it doesn't show in NHTSA checking either.
Maybe audi slow to updating the recall like you said.
