- Audi of America, Inc., A division of Volkswagen, today announced that it is voluntarily

this concern nor have there been any fires, accidents or injuries. Audi, however, is aware
of one occurrence of leakage involving a company owned vehicle.
Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by
express mail. They will be asked to contact their authorized Audi dealer to have the fuel
lines replaced at no cost. Replacement parts are available now at the respective
