Audi Australia Pty Ltd — Audi A1 (8X), A3 (8P) and TT (8J) MY2011-2013

Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
See attached VIN list

What are the defects?

Due to a production fault, over time a crack in the transmission’s pressure accumulator can occur.

What are the hazards?

If the pressure accumulator cracks, oil and pressure is lost in the hydraulic system of the gearbox. As a result, the transmission of engine power via the gearbox is interrupted. The experience of this symptom would be comparable to depressing the clutch in a vehicle fitted with a manual transmission.
This could increase the risk of an accident and injury to vehicle occupants or other road users. In the event of a serious accident this may result in death.

What should consumers do?

Audi Australia Pty Ltd is contacting all known owners of affected vehicles. Consumers should contact their nearest Audi dealer to arrange for inspection and repair.

For further information, contact the Audi Australia on 1800 50 AUDI (2834) between 8am and 6pm AET or email customerassistance@audi-info.com.au
