Volkswagen Recalls 10,200 Audis

October 07, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Volkswagen of America Inc. is recalling 10,200 MY 2006-2010 Audi A3, TT and TT Roadster passenger vehicles manufactured between Sept. 29, 2005 and Aug. 26, 2009. 

According to the NHTSA, the closing force of an internal spring of the fuel tank ventilation valve isn't adequate enough to hold the valve closed under extreme driving conditions. This flaw increases the likelihood of a fuel leak, which in turn increases the risk of fire. 

Volkswagen will notify vehicle owners of the recall, and Audi dealers will replace the fuel tank ventilation valve with an improved valve free of charge. 

Vehicle owners can contact Audi at (800) 253-2834.
