Audi Australia is recalling 7758 examples of its A3 and Q2 because the internal fuse box wiring harness may become loose, causing an array of electrical faults.
This recall affects all variants of the Audi A3 and Q2 produced between 2019 and 2023.
“Due to an installation defect, the internal fuse box wiring harness may become loose,” said the company in its recall notice.
“If this occurs, the instrument cluster may fail to illuminate, internal, external lamps may switch off, and the vehicle may experience a sudden loss of motive power whilst driving.”
Audi Australia notes in the event of a failure, the driver will still be able to steer the vehicle and apply the brakes.
If you own an affected vehicle, you’ll be contacted by Audi Australia and asked to arrange with your nearest authorised Audi dealer to have the work carried out, free of charge.
If you have further questions you can contact Audi Australia on 1800 502 834.
