Several vehicles under the Volkswagen Group umbrella have been recalled for the same issue having to do with leaky fuel system parts. The Audi S4, A7, Volkswagen Touareg, and Porsche Panamera S Hybrid are all included in this recall.

2011-2012 Audi S4, S5, Q7; 2012 A6; 2012-2013 A7; 2012 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid

The Problem: Certain 2011-2013 Audi models with the 3.0-liter engine and one Volkswagen model have been recalled because there may be a leak in the fuel injection system. The leak can occur as a result of "production tolerance issues" and vehicle vibrations, and increases the risk of a fire.
