Audi Recalls A8 and A7 Models in Europe

Time last night Audi issued a recall of around 24,000 A8 and A7 models in Europe at the insistence of prosecutors in Munich. The car-maker is recalling the cars to fix an software “swindle” that allows them to emit more NOx than is allowed by the direction.

This recall marks the first time that the A8 has been named in the dieselgate calumny, and also the first time that Audi has been accused of wrongdoing in Germany.

The Munich prosecutors are accusing Audi of having employed a software phony that allows them to change the transmission mapping during a test recycle, which the on board computer determines as a result of a lack of steering input. This in turn allowed the cars to go better in testing than they do on the road, say the prosecutors.

A source close to Audi told Reuters that the fix is a to some degree simple one and that a proposal for a legal fix has been submitted the KBA, Germany’s motor conveyance authority.
