A REVIEW FOR V6 TDI AND V8 TDI ENGINES IN EUROPE

The ring brand has just announced the introduction of a recall for its models driven by the V6 TDI and V8 TDI responding to Euro 5 standards. The latter would reject much more NOx than normal according to the manufacturer.

Following the Dieselgate, it would be easy to reconcile this announcement with the use of fraudulent software within the Volkswagen Group in the past. but Audi will be granted the benefit of the doubt, especially as the V8 TDI seems to have always been spared by the illicit practices of Volkswagen. according to Audi, the internal NOx anomaly, which results in a rate 20 to 100% higher than Euro 5 standards, would be due to incorrect calibration of the software regulating the transmission. in fact, the reminder will involve only an update of this system and will take about 30 minutes.

A total of 24,000 cars are affected in Europe, all of the A7 and A8, including 14,000 in Germany alone. the owners of the cars concerned will be contacted as early as July.
