Audi is recalling 74,881 of the 2016 to 2018 Q7 SUV and A6 and A7 cars, and 2015 to 2018 Audi A8 cars, because part of the system that delivers fuel to the engine can develop leaks, which could lead to fire , according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Details

The vehicles: 74,881 cars and SUVs, including:

  • 2016 to 2018 A6 cars built from Nov. 3, 2014, through Feb. 1, 2018.
  • 2016 to 2018 A7 cars built from Oct. 31, 2014, through Feb. 2, 2018.

  • 2016 to 2018 Q7 SUVs built from Aug. 30, 2015, through Jan. 24, 2018.

The problem: Welding variations in the left and right fuel rails could lead to leaks. The rails take gasoline from the fuel line and deliver it to the injectors, which in turn feed the gasoline into the engine. The leaks could potentially lead to a fire, Audi says.

The fix: Audi says dealers will replace the fuel rails at no charge to owners.
