The German luxury car manufacturer Audi recalls more than one million of its vehicles due to faulty electric coolant pumps that could overheat and cause a fire.
The recall affects approximately 1.2 million Audi cars and SUVs overall and includes The A4 (2013 to 2016), the A5 (2013 to 2017), the A6 (2012 to 2015) and the Q5 SUV 2013 to 2017 reports the Associated Press.
All affected Audi vehicles are equipped with a 2-liter turbo engine. Audi says the coolant pumps are prone to moisture that can cause an electrical short or a debris block from the cooling system, according to government documents received from the AP.
Audi told the AP that there had been reports of fires detailing the incidents. The Volkswagen brand did not respond immediately to Fortune for a request for comment.
If you believe that your Audi vehicle may be affected, the manufacturer says that dealers will replace the coolant pumps for free with a new version of the current model until a redesigned pump is available in November.
Audi attempted to address the mechanical problem with a software update last year, but turned to a recall after problems with the coolant pump continued, according to documents released by the US Department of Transportation [1
