Volkswagen has announced that it is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Audi R8 Spyder vehicles manufactured from May 18, 2010 through June 22, 2011. They stated that the fuel supply line may contact and rub against the heat shield in the engine compartment. This could lead to a small fuel leak.
A fuel leak in the presence of a ignition source could lead to a vehicle fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel line for damage and replace it if necessary free of charge. Owners may contact Audi at 1-800-822-2834.
