The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has issued safety recalls for the recently launched Maserati Levante SUV and several Audi models over engine faults.
Audi Australia has called back 2252 vehicles across its A4,A5 and A6 model lines, which specifically employ the 2.0-litre 'TFSI' turbocharged four-cylinder petrol unit, and were built between 2011 and 2016.
If coolant containing foreign particles block the additional coolant pump in affected vehicles, it could cause the part to significantly overheat, potentially leading to a fire.
Owners of these models will be contacted by the German carmaker via mail, and instructed to arrange an inspection of the engine control unit (ECU) at their preferred Audi dealership.
The recalls follow those from Audi earlier this month.
Pending evaluation, a software update will be applied to the ECU, which modifies the activation and diagnosis of the additional coolant pump.
The recalls follow those from Audi earlier this month, which saw 9098 Q5s and 2191 A3s called back for unrelated issues.
