Do you smell gas fumes while driving your car? After receiving several complaints for fuel smells and leaks in certain 2013-2014 Audi S6 and S7 vehicles, Volkswagen has concluded that a safety concern exists. Approximately 3,594 vehicles could be affected by this problem.
According to Audi, a manufacturing tolerance issue in the fuel line could result in damage to the line over time. Resulting fuel leaks in the presence of an ignition source could lead to a fire. To help identify and correct this defect Audi is asking owners to take their vehicles to their nearest dealer for inspection and if necessary, replace the defective fuel line.
Fuel smells can come from a range of leaks throughout the fuel system or if your engine is running poorly, directly from the exhaust. The problem can be a health and safety hazard if it goes unchecked, so it is important have repairs done immediately.
If a manufacturer approved repair facility has repeatedly tried to fix your fuel smell unsuccessfully, your vehicle could qualify as a lemon under the California Lemon Law. Contact us now at 1-888-395-3666 for a free lemon law consultation with an experienced attorney.
