DUBAI – Coolant pumps that may overheat and cause fire sparked the recall of 804 Audi vehicles in the Middle East.
Worldwide, Audi is recalling 1.2 million cars and SUVs over the fire hazard. The recall affects Audi’s A4, A5, Q5 and A6 models with 2.0-litre TFSI engines manufactured between 2012 and 2017.
Audi’s distributor in the UAE, Al Nabooda Automobiles and Ali and Sons, said the recall was effective immediately and that repairs will be free of cost.
According to Volkswagen Group, owner of Audi, the pumps can be blocked by debris and moisture in the pump can cause an electrical short circuit.
“It is possible that moisture may enter the electronic components and cause the overheating and failure of the additional coolant pump,” Audi said in a statement. GAD/Expat Media
