Audi Recalls 1.16 Million Cars Globally in Order to Repair Coolant Pump Problem

VW’s Audi subgroup announced recently that it was recalling 1.16 million of its vehicles from the four corners of the world. This step is being taken after some careful thinking.

The issue is the coolant pump. It could heat up and cause a fire hazard. So the tough decision was made for the sake of consumer safety.

Among the vehicles that will be recalled may be included: the 2013-2017 Audi A5 Cabriolet, the A5 Sedan, Audi Q5, 2012-2015 Audi A6 and last but not least the 2013-2016 Audi A4 Sedan and A4 Allroad.

According to Audi, the pump gets clogged due to wastage coming out of the cooling system. While no accidents had occurred so far, it was a case of being better off safe than sorry. While the dealers will substitute the new parts for the old ones, in what time period this will take place remains a mystery.

Among the recalled vehicles, some 342,000 are from the US alone. The rest of the vehicles according to the country they were in remains an unknown number.

This happens to be the second time in a row that Audi is recalling its cars. Way back in January of 2017, Audi needed to revamp the software in these vehicles and thus had to recall them.
