Audi recalls 330,000 cars in Germany on possible electrical problem

MUNICH (Reuters) - German premium carmaker Audi (NSUG.DE) said on Wednesday it was recalling 330,000 cars in Germany due to possible problems with electrical connections for the auxiliary heater that could cause fires.

A spokesman for Audi, a unit of Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE), said the recall affected models A4, A5, A5 Cabriolet and Q5 built between April 2011 and May 2015.

    He said a few customers had reported a smell of burning in their cars but there had been no fires or other damage.

    German online trade publication Kfz-Rueckrufe.de first reported the recall.
