VW recalls 680,000 Audi cars

GERMAN carmaker Volkswagen will recall nearly 680,000 premium Audi cars in China over defects in coolant pumps that could lead to engine fires, according to the country’s quality regulator.

Blockages in the system “in extreme circumstances could cause a fire in the engine compartment,” said a statement on the website of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

The recall starting on Friday will affect some types of Audi made both in China and overseas between 2011 and 2016, the regulator said in the statement.

Dealers will carry out the necessary repairs and replace parts free of charge.

In January, VW recalled more than 342,000 cars in the United States for the same problem.
