Last week, Ram, Audi and Hyundai issued vehicle recall notices for a variety of defects.
2014-2019 Ram 1500 diesel vehicles have been recalled (VINs found here) due to a manufacturing issue which may cause the EGR cooler to crack and allow coolant to leak into the intake manifold.
This leakage increases the risk of a fire occurring. Owners of affected vehicles can expect to receive a notice in the mail advising that the vehicle needs to visit a preferred dealer for a free repair.
A previous recall notice by Audi for the following vehicles has been reissued (VINs found here):
2011-2016 Audi A1 (8X) with seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox
2008-2016 Audi A3 (8P, 8V) with seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox
2012-2016 Audi TT (8J) with seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox
All vehicles that were previously inspected for a production fault which may see a crack in the transmission pressure accumulator develop over time that were deemed to not need a repair will need to be reinspected.
Audi will be contacting known owners of affected vehicles to have them arrange a free inspection and repair of their vehicle.
A large-scale recall notice has been issued for the following vehicles by Hyundai:
2007-2011 Hyundai i30 (FD) (VINs found here)
2006-2011 Hyundai Elantra (HD) (VINs found here)
2006-2009 Hyundai Santa Fe (VINs found here)
A manufacturing error may allow an electronic control circuit board in the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) module to short circuit when exposed to moisture increasing the risk of a fire igniting in the engine compartment.
Affected vehicles need to be parked in an open space away from flammable materials and structures until the vehicle can have a relay kit installed on the circuit board by a preferred Hyundai dealer.
