With KBA approval, Audi to start recall of diesel models in Germany

On Wednesday, Audi will begin the first of eight recalls for cars with V TDI engines in Germany. Following approval by the Federal Office for Motor Traffic (KBA) the company will initially be recalling around 31,200 vehicles to the workshops. In total, around 151,000 midsize and full-size cars in Germany are affected by the eight recall notices.

In the first wave, Audi A6 and Audi A7 Sportback models will be recalled into the workshops in Germany. This involves 31,200 vehicles powered by a 3.0 TDI engine with an output of 200 kW from the model years 2015 through 2018.

A software module will be removed from the engine management system as part of the recall. This update is free of charge for Audi customers and will not adversely affect fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures, engine output, maximum torque, noise emissions or the durability of the engine and the exhaust aftertreatment system.

This software update is a mandatory recall. Audi will therefore contact all affected vehicle owners in Germany to request that they contact their workshop partner or dealer.

The first of the eight recall notices will be implemented on Wednesday. The other recalls will also start immediately as soon as they have been approved by the Federal Office for Motor Traffic.

" This update... will not adversely affect fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures, engine output, maximum torque, noise emissions or the durability of the engine and the exhaust aftertreatment system." - this is not even possible.

If somebody measures engine torque values and fuel consumption before and after remap AND verifies what we all know, this will be another scandal in court. AUDI will pay for that. Can't fix a broken thing the way we are promised.

Another LNT "activatation" with spraying extra fuel during exhaust cycle. Can't be more banal than that.
