Audi is recalling more than 52,000 luxury cars in the U.S. and Canada to fix fuel lines that can leak and increase the risk of a fire. The recall covers certain A6 and A7 cars from the 2012 through 2014 model years. The Volkswagen luxury brand said in government documents that the fuel lines have a compression point to make them easier to install. Owners will be notified starting February 5. Dealers will replace the faulty fuel lines.
