The water may leak into the vehicle's interior, brake booster, or electrical components, which can lead to major problems.

The aging of the plastic material in the fuel tank rollover valve, combined with stress from the aluminum ventilation line attached to it, may lead to cracking of the connection nipple.

This recall is expected to begin during June 2011. The Audi recall number is 20L8/JY.
