The recall documentation states that the fuel tank ventilation system’s spring may not have the resistance needed to remain closed under certain driving conditions. This can cause the valve to remain open and create a potentially serious fuel leak. This fuel leak could ignite, resulting in a vehicle fire.
Volkswagen is notifying all affected customers of the recall. All Audi dealers will repair the fuel tank ventilation system free of charge. For additional information or to check if your 2010 Audi TT is affected by this recall, call Audi at 1-800-253-2834.
