The National Highway Traffic Safety Admin. begins investigating 210,626 ’98-’01 model Audi A4 and A6 sedans due to reports of pedals breaking. NHTSA has received two such reports in which a bracket that connects the pedals to the instrument panel came apart. One of the two episodes involved an accident resulting in two fatalities. Audi parent Volkswagen AG says the accident occurred in Europe, but it is cooperating with NHTSA’s request for information. No recall has been issued.
