On December 18, 2011 I was driving down the road and my vehicle stalled. I had my car towed to the local Audi dealer and was told that it needed a new fuel pump. I conducted an internet search and discovered that my Audi had been part of a recall and I asked the local dealer if the recall repair had ever been conducted, they told me that my vehicle was not part of a recall. They told me that only Audi a-4's were part of the recall. However, the NHTSA website shows a letter dated July 23, 2007 sent from Volkswagen of America, inc. (parent company of Audi of America, inc. ) to mr daniel smith of NHTSA notifying NHTSA that vw of America is recalling and replacing fuel pumps on vw passat’s, Audi a-4’s and Audi a-6’s, additionally, the letter listed a range of vin’s for effected Audi A6’s that included my VIN. In the aforementioned letter, vw of America told NHTSA that “any subject vehicle that is presented for service to an authorized Volkswagen/Audi dealer will be repaired free of charge. €� could someone please assist me in causing vw of America to do what they told NHTSA they were going to do? vw of America never notified me of the safety issue or of the recall, and when I presented this information to the dealer they still refused to pay for the repair. Audi endangered me and likely other consumers by never informing us of the recall and I have been forced to pay over $500 to repair a part that was part of a recall and would be repaired free of charge. Could you please assist me in collecting my funds from Audi? additionally, I believe they should be subject to significant penalties and fines for deceiving NHTSA.

My 2003 Audi A6 quattro sputtered, choked and died as I tried to pull into traffic. The vehicle did restart and then did the same thing as I tried to pull out onto another road, and completely failed. Vehicle had to pushed out of traffic and to the side of the road with assistance, then towed to nearby garage. Diagnosed that fuel pump was cause of failure. Mechanic said they could tap on the fuel pump to get it to run, which confirmed that it was the cause of failure. I was also advised by the garage that my vehicle had been subject of fuel pump recalls, although Audi denied that my vehicle fell under that particular recall. Very dangerous situation as I failed twice as I was entering traffic. In my opinion, fuel pumps should not fail by 66,000 miles.

When filling the gas tank in my 99 Audi A6 quattro pressure builds inside the tank and sprays back at me. This has happened each time I put gas in it full or not. A recall was made but, not for my VIN. I spoke with a Audi rep. And a dealership and they said there's nothing that can be done unless I pay for it. I would but, there is already a recall made for that car just not that VIN. It's a hazard and I've had other problems that I paid for. Please let me know if anything can be done. Thank you for your time!.
