NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 08V157000 VOLKSWAGEN IS RECALLING 68,240 MY 2001-2002 AUDI A6 QUATTRO VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 2.7L, 2.8L, OR 3.0L ENGINES AND MY 2001-2005 ALLROAD QUATTRO VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 2.7L OR 4.2L ENGINES. THE AGING OF THE PLASTIC MATERIAL IN THE FUEL TANK ROLLOVER VALVE COMBINED WITH BENDING STRESS FROM THE ALUMINUM VENTILATION LINE TO THE ROLLOVER VALVE NIPPLE MAY LEAD TO CRACKING OF THE NIPPLE. IF THIS HAPPENS, A FUEL LEAK MAY RESULT. THIS IS THE 3RD TIME I'VE MADE A COMPLAINT. I HAVE A 2002 AUDI A6 WITH THIS PROBLEM AND YET NO ONE WILL LISTEN TO ME. THE REASON IS THAT MY ENGINE IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL. IT IS THE 4.2 V8 IN THE SEDAN. AUDI COVERED THAT ENGINE ON THE ALLROAD VERSION AND ALL OTHER ENGINES ON THE SEDAN, SO MY ENGINE WAS THE ONLY VERSION NO COVERED. I PERSONALLY SPENT $1200 ATTEMPTING TO FIX THE PROBLEM, BUT I'M TOLD THE LEAK HAS RETURNED AND THE NOTICEABLE SMELL OF GAS IS A TELL-TALE SIGN. THE MECHANIC STATED AND I AGREE, THAT THE ENGINE DISPLACEMENT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LEAK. ALL THE TANKS ARE THE SAME AND THE 4.2L SHOULDN'T BE OMITTED FROM THIS RECALL. THE SMELL AND POTENTIAL DANGER IS MOST EVIDENT WHEN I FILL THE TANK BEYOND 3/4 FULL. EVERY TIME I START MY CAR, I WONDER IF THIS WILL BE THE EXPLOSION DAY. PLEASE DON'T WAIT UNTIL MY CAR EXPLODES TO AGREE WITH ME. [XXX] INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
