Australian recall roundup: Audi vehicles for braking problems image

Audi Australia has issued a recall for several vehicles sold locally because of a potential problem with their braking systems.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), there are a total of 1,240 vehicles which will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with their braking system. the ACCC says that the affected vehicles include the Audi A4, the A5, the A5 Cabrio, the A6, the A7 and also the Q5 crossovers but don’t worry, because the fix time will only take about an hour.

The affected Audi vehicles have been produced between March and December 2012 and all of them have been fitted with the 3.0 liter TDI turbo diesel engine. The issue has been found within their brakes as the engine oil can enter the brake servo through the vacuum lines and make it rupture, causing failure. This will eventually increase the stopping distance and pose a potential hazard to the driver, occupants and other road users. The fix will be made free of charge and for any details on the subject, owners should contact their local Audi representative.
