920 units of the Audi R8 Spyder recalled

Audi R8 Spyder

Recalls really seem to be the buzz as of recent. So here’s another recall. Volkswagen is issuing one for 920 2011-2012 Audi R8 Spyder units. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a fuel leak may occur.

The cars in trouble were built between May 18, 2010 and June 21, 2011. Owners would be able to find out if it is their R8 by looking at the assembly date on the driver side doorjamb.

Word is that a fuel supply line may rub against a heat shield in the engine compartment. Fuel could then leak in the engine bay and could potentially cause a fire.

The recall is expected to start around August 22 where dealers will inspect the fuel line and replace it for free. Owners of the R8 can call Audi at 800-822-2834 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
