Porsche and Audi Recalls: Growing Concern Over Gas Leaks – Forbes
By Christopher Jensen
A concern over gas leaks has prompted the recall of 241,000 Audi and 51,000 Porsche models in the United States, according to reports posted Friday on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Audi action is an expansion of a recall last October of 143,000 models for the same problem.
The automaker said it concluded the new recall was necessary as the result of “an ongoing analysis.”
The problem with the Audi and Porsche models is that the fuel pump flange may develop small cracks, the automaker said in its report to federal regulators.
The report did not mention any fires or injuries.
The new recall covers the 2013-15 Audi Q7; 2013-17 Audi Q5; 2015 – 17 Porsche Macan S; 2015 – 17 Porsche Macan Turbo; 2017 Porsche Macan; 2017 Porsche Macan GTS and the 2017 Porsche Macan Turbo with the performance package.
The recall last October covered the 2007 – 12 Audi Q7 and 2009 – 12 Audi Q5.
