I have just read that a number of diesel models built since 2015 have been fitted with so called ‘cheat devices’.

The B9 3.0 TDi is reported to be one of the models affected and will shortly be issued with a recall by Audi.

Yeah, read this yesterday. Never bothered taking my A5 in for the software update but don’t think I’ll be able to avoid this recall :(

Have you a link to this news?

Seeing as Audi had stated that the internal probe was over last year this isn't good for their reputation...

You couldn't even spec the 3.0 diesel when I configured my S4. That engine option seemed to have been removed.

As a new owner of an A4 Avant 3.0 TDi 218 (bought in December 2017 as ex Audi UK demo car) I was a little concerned it would need a software fix. You can check if the EA 189 NOx emissions recall applies to you here https://www.audi.co.uk/owners-area/emissions.html by entering you registration number. I was not affected and also called the number on the FAQ page and the chap confirmed this. Mine is a Euro-6 diesel 66 reg fyi.
I hope this helps as it appears to be in contrast to what the Routers article was saying.
All the best
Mark

My 2016 model 3.0 TDi does not come up as needing any modification.

I believe the recall hasn’t been issued yet but will be shortly, so the articles I have read state.

Will be interested to see what happens over next few months, our 2016 3.0TDI 218 Quattro had a software update (its second) at the same time as 20k mile service 2 weeks ago, ours also doesn't come up as needing modification in the EA198Nox but as has been said seems this recall hasn't been rolled out yet.

Has the 3.0l diesel the ea189 designation. I thought that refers to the 1.6 and 2.0l diesels...

The EA 189 nox recall is for euro 5 1.6 & 2.0 diesel engines. Any one putting there euro 6 engine car on the audi emission page will say car isn't affected. The press reports in Germany are for euro 6 3.0 tdi engines that they now say are suspected to be using cheat devices in. Audi dealers no nothing about it at the moment

Amazing that the media are making so much fuss over this monkey test, do they not know this goes on all the time with the products they themselves are using and with many different animals as well? https://www.rspca.org.uk/adviceandwelfare/laboratory/testingchemicals The usual hypocritical press not understanding that the EU, along with other countries have been promoting the toxicity tests for years...

That's because the dealership don't know and are still working to the ea189 recall...

I guess they don't know either, or are just as confused as we are as they don't appear to have their stories right. Perhaps it depends upon who you talk to...
