Audi recalls approximately 5,000 A8 automobiles with V8 TDI engine in Europe

  • Audi sees requirement for a software update and has informed the regulatory authorities in detail
  • A8 models of the type D4 with Euro 6 certification are affected
  • A software update to improve emissions in real driving operation is being discussed with the regulatory authorities 

As a result of extensive technical investigations, Audi has determined that a software update is required for its Audi A8 model (type D4) with the 4.2-liter TDI V8 engine with Euro 6 certification. Among other things, the update should ensure that after cold starts, the engine more quickly reaches optimal operating conditions for the exhaust-gas treatment system so that its emissions are improved in real driving conditions.
