According to the concern of the auto industry, Audi owners actually reported this situation as early as a few years ago. Nanjing Metropolis Daily previously reported that Mr. Wang bought an Audi Q5L on June 26, 2019, and the vehicle suddenly failed to start on October 27. After testing by maintenance personnel at the 4S store, it was found that liquid had seeped into the back seat, causing the vehicle to malfunction. Mr. Wang admitted that he did pour half a bottle of drink on the back seat, but questioned the quality of the vehicle itself. According to the description of many car owners, the reason for this recall is basically the same as that of FAW-Volkswagen. When the drink is accidentally spilled on the seat, it may enter the gateway control module, resulting in a short circuit inside the gateway control module. And may lead to a series of failures, while 4S stores generally believe that the failure is caused by man-made, car owners need to repair the vehicle at their own expense, the cost is about 12000 yuan.

In addition to Audi Q5L, FAW-Volkswagen also recalled some imported Audi SQ5 vehicles from April 14, 2021 to December 3, 2021, a total of 368 vehicles.

After the liquid enters, it may cause a short circuit inside the gateway control module, which will further cause a variety of internal errors. The gateway control module has a security design. If unreliable signals are detected, the engine, gearbox and steering system will enter the protection mode, and the gearbox clutch will be disconnected, resulting in power interruption while the vehicle is running. Increase the possibility of accidents, there are security risks.
In view of the above defects, FAW-Volkswagen Automobile Co., Ltd. will entrust Audi authorized dealers to install the protective cover of the gateway control module for the vehicles within the recall range free of charge; for imported SQ5 vehicles produced before August 28, 2021, the dealers will also carry out glue sealing in the areas of insufficient sealing at the bottom of the body free of charge to prevent liquid from entering, so as to eliminate safety risks.
