According to Audi, the rear axle alignments may not have been inspected after repairs were performed during a May 2021 recall.

Following the 2021 rear axle recall, Audi learned about European vehicles that were suffering from premature and uneven tire wear. Audi engineers opened an investigation but couldn't find any U.S. vehicle problems.

However, the automaker says the recall is needed because problems may still occur if the rear axle alignments weren't properly inspected.

Audi is offering a reimbursement plan to customers who paid their own money for repairs or dealer visits.

About 4,361 of the recalled Audi vehicles are located in Canada.

Audi dealerships will adjust the rear axle alignment and replace any tires that are worn.

Audi recall notices are expected to be mailed March 25, 2022, but concerned owners may call 800-253-2834 and use recall number 42L5.
