problem #1

  • 75,000 miles
Reading my E-mail notification from NHTSA I found that the recall no. 17V-509 issued to vwgoa may affect and apply to our car (Audi A3 my 2004 engine 2.0 fsi) since it has the same failed part on its structure (1K0 906 093 F). Checking the engines list originally on the recall report from August 16th 2017 I've found the same part number installed in our car and even form the same supplier (kuhnke automotive gmbh). It's not a new car but considering it's a potential failure to occur while the car is running since the installed part number is the same, the risk of a vehicle crash is present accordong to the declaration in the safety recall report. How should I contact Audi in Mexico or usa to ask for the necessary investigation or actions? of course IT0's out of warranty period but the risk could be present in my car.
