Audi recalls 2012-model 3.0TDI cars

Audi Australia has announced a recall of models equipped with its 3.0-litre TDI turbo-diesel engine over potential brakes issues.

THE AUSTRALIAN RECALL is part of a global recall of more than 70,000 Audi models. In Australia, Audi states that 1240 vehicles are affected, including Audi A4, A5, A5 Cabriolet, A6, A7 and Q5 3.0 TDI vehicles – the affected vehicles were all produced between March and December 2012.

According to a statement posted to Product Safety Recalls Australia, “Engine oil may enter the brake servo via the vacuum lines. If this should happen, the diaphragm in the brake servo can rupture, causing the brake servo to fail”. This would cause stopping time and distance to increase.

Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by Audi Australia with a recommended course of action.
