Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen issue a recall for 93,500 vehicles

German car manufacturers Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen have issued a global recall for over 93,500 cars and SUVs, to fix fuel-leak issues. The cars and SUVs which have been recalled include 2012 Touareg Hybrid, 2011-12 Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid and Panamera S Hybrid, 2011-12 Audi S4, S5 and Q7 and the 2012-13 Audi A7.

The faulty component in question is a part of the fuel-injection system of the Volkswagen Group’s 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine. The company said that the vibrations in the system caused during driving can cause small leaks in rare cases, which could further escalate into fires. The group added till now, that they weren’t aware of any fires caused by this problem.

Volkswagen Group is the world’s biggest car maker and as a result, the cars manufactured by different brands owned by the German group end up sharing a significant number of parts. As a result, a problem detected in one of its cars’ components might potentially plague many other models too. In this case, the fuel-injection system was used in different Audi and Porsche models too and as a result, the numbers of cars affected by the recall has also ballooned.
