1998-2000 Audi A6 Quattro Automobiles Recalled
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - Audi, a division of
Volkswagen has announced the recall of certain 1998-2000 Audi A6
Quattro automobiles because the fuel gauge may act erratically and not display the correct
amount of fuel left in the tank.
According to Audi, The fuel tank may show
full when the vehicle only has a half a tank of gas. It may also show a half a tank,
when the vehicle is empty.
Parts to replace the unreliable fuel gauge will
not be available until August 7, 2000. Until that time, Audi suggests that anyone
who experiences problems or fluctuations with their fuel gauge should reset the tripometer
to zero each time they refuel. When the tripometer reaches 200 miles, owners should
refuel the vehicle.
Owner notification has already begun. Owners
with questions should contact Audi at 1-800-822-2834.
