Volkswagen has recalled nearly 600,000 vehicles from its luxury brand, Audi, for two separate issues.

A recall affecting 2013-2017 model year A5, A5 Cabriolet and Q5 SUVs comes due to the risk of an electric coolant pump becoming blocked, causing it to overheat and start a fire. This recall includes 342,867 vehicles.

“Audi has developed software which deactivates the power supply to the coolant pump, if the pump becomes blocked with debris,” the automaker says in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents. “The driver will be notified of the blocked coolant pump through the illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL). The software update will be performed at no cost to customers.”
