Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche are recalling more than 80,000 cars and SUVs worldwide to fix fuel leak problems. The cars covered by the recall are the Audi A6 and Volkswagen Touareg hybrid from the 2012 model year, the Audi A7 from 2012 and 2013, and the Audi Q7, S4 and S5 from 2011 through 2012. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, all the vehicles have 3-liter V-6 engines. Also, a separate but similar recall was issued from Porsche covering the Cayenne and Panamera S hybrids from 2011 to 2012 for a similar problem.
Volkswagen, which owns all three brands, says vibration during driving and production issues can cause small leaks in rare cases. The manufacturer said it was not aware of any fires or injuries caused by the problem in the U.S. The problem was discovered in March of 2013 when customers began complaining of a fuel odor, according to the NHTSA documents. VW investigated the problem and decided to issue a recall in January of 2015. It will notify owners in March and dealers will replace the fuel injector rails and seals for free.
