Audi has issued two separate recalls for unrelated matters that concern a handful of its vehicles. The first recall affects the A8 and S8 flagship sedans while the second affects the sporty S6 and S7 models.

The first recall is due to a faulty sunroof that may end up shattering. The recall only affects owners of 2013 and 2014 model year A8 and S8 sedans that were built from March 12, 2013, through July 15, 2013. According to Audi, there are some 1,120 affected vehicles in the U.S. alone.

The automaker is in the process of notifying owners. Their local dealer will replace the affected sunroof's glass panel, free of charge.

The second recall affects all S6 and S7 models from the 2013 and 2014 model years, of which there are said to be 3,594 vehicles in the U.S. According to the automaker, fuel lines for the affected cars' twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engines may leak because of manufacturing tolerance issues. Should this occur, the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.

For this issue, dealers will replace the fuel line, once again at no cost to the owner.

For further information you can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 1-888-327-4236 (reference recall campaign number 13V448000 for the sunroof issue or 13V450000 for the fuel leak) or Audi at 1-800-822-2834.
