DETROIT — Audi, Volkswagen and Porsche are recalling about 27,000 cars and SUVs in the U.S. to fix fuel leak problems.

The recalls cover the Audi A6 and Volkswagen Touraeg hybrid from the 2012 model year, the Audi A7 from 2012 and 2013, and the Audi Q7, S4 and S5 from 2011 through 2012. All the vehicles have 3-liter V-6 engines. Porsche is recalling the Cayenne and Panamera S hybrids from 2011 to 2012 for a similar problem.

Volkswagen, which makes all three brands, says vibration during driving, and production issues can cause leaks in rare cases. VW says it’s not aware of any fires caused by the problem.

VW will notify owners in March and dealers will replace the fuel injector rails and seals for free.
