A number of Petrol-powered vehicles in the Volkswagen Golf and Audi A3 ranges have been recalled this week, over concerns for a potential fuel pump failure.
Announced separately by the local Volkswagen Group Australia and Audi Australia companies, this new recall is focused on concerns that the petrol fuel pump in “certain vehicles” across the petrol Golf and A3 lines could fail.
Both vehicles are built on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform, utilising a common array of powertrains and components.
If a failure with the fuel pump occurs, the vehicle will no longer be driveable and could cause a hazard to the driver and other road users.
Both companies have initiated written contact with affected owners to arrange inspection and repairs. An Audi Australia spokesperson has confirmed with CarAdvice that required works will take around 1.5 hours.
