A spokesman for Audi in Germany, Udo Ruegheimer, said the recall covered 1.16 million vehicles worldwide. Right? Hopefully Audi fixes this now, though, because the new 2.0 TFSI engine is a very good one that could have its reputation tarnished with claims on unreliability if things like this keep happening.

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the pumps, free of charge, however, parts are not now available, according to a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the United States. Until then, dealers will install a new version of the current pump until the redesigned pumps are available. In January 2017 the brand recalled the same group of vehicles in the USA in order to update the software to ensure that the pump would be deactivated if the pump were to be blocked by debris. But the company says in documents posted Tuesday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that pump problems continued.
