problem #3

Dec 032008


  • 80,000 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Audi A4. While driving 20 mph downhill, the vehicle suddenly lost all power. The contact depressed the brake pedal and the vehicle stopped. The vehicle was towed to a repair shop and they stated that the fuel pump failed. A report was filed with the manufacturer and they stated that his vehicle was in production two months prior to NHTSA campaign id number 08V157000 (fuel system, gasoline: Storage: Tank assembly) being issued; therefore, his VIN was not included in the recall. The vehicle will be towed to the dealer for repair. The current and failure mileages were 80,000.
