What’s the Problem?

This recall affects 2019-2020 Audi A6 vehicles equipped with mild-hybrid technology and 2.0TFSI engines, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Moisture may enter the starter generator and cause an electrical short circuit on the recalled Audis, NHTSA said. A short circuit in the starter generator increases the risk of a fire.

Volkswagen is notifying owners and dealers will replace the starter generator, free of charge. This recall began on May 15, 2020.

Audi Electrical System Malfunction Lawsuit

Audi AG is facing a class action lawsuit alleging defects in the electrical systems of certain 2018 – 2023 Audi A6 vehicles. The lawsuit claims that owners and lessees of said vehicles have experienced issues with their alternators and starter generators that caused various warning messages to appear on their dashboards.

These warning messages indicate potential problems with the car’s battery or charging systems and have resulted in extensive repairs for which consumers have had to foot the bill.

However, the most serious issue arising from these electrical system malfunctions is the potential safety hazards they pose to drivers, passengers, and others on the road. A malfunctioning alternator or starter generator can result in the vehicle stalling without warning, resulting in a sudden stop while driving or a complete breakdown of the car. Such incidents can be extremely dangerous and lead to severe injuries and even death.

As a result of these problems, a group of affected owners has filed an electrical system malfunction lawsuit against Audi. The complaint is seeking compensation for damages incurred by owners, including the cost of repairs and associated expenses.
