2015 Audi A3: Our Car Avoids VW Fuel Pump Recall
May 1, 2015
Volkswagen is recalling more than 6,000 vehicles for possible fuel-pump failure, and some 2015 Audi A3 models are included in that sweep.
In its recall summary, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that "improper nickel plating of the components within the fuel pump may result in the fuel pump failing. If the fuel pump fails, the vehicle will not start, or if the engine is running, it will stop and the vehicle will stall, increasing the risk of a crash."
Yikes. Sounds like a truck we know...
We called Audi customer service with our A3's VIN number and, lucky for us, our long-termer is not included in the recall. We're still waiting to hear about our long-term GTI, however.
