VW recalls Audis over sunroof glass and fuel line issues

Volkswagen recalls 2013 to 2014 Audi A8 and S8 and Audi S6 and S7 vehicles.


Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2013 to 2014 Audi A8 and S8 vehicles equipped with a standard sunroof, manufactured March 12, 2013, through July 15, 2013, because the standard sunroof glass panel may shatter, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The manufacturer is also recalling certain model year 2013 to 2014 Audi S6 and S7 vehicles equipped with 4.0L engines. Due to manufacturing tolerance issues, a fuel line may leak fuel, according to NHTSA.?

For the Audi A8 and S8 vehicles, should the sunroof's glass break while the vehicle is in use, the falling glass could injure the driver or passengers. It could also distract the driver, increasing the risk of a crash.
