Audi A6, A7, A3 recalled for airbags not engine problems

Audi has two recalls running across several of its models, the largest of which is because of airbags problems. We know that you were thinking there was a new Audi engine recall, but it makes a change for there to be something else wrong.

Audi A6, A7, A3 recalled

The German carmaker is to recall 21,978 vehicles in the United States, 21,074 examples is because of the airbag issue for 2012-2013 A6 sedans, and 2012-2013 A7 models. These vehicles were manufactured between March 28, 2011, and March 25, 2013 and January 25, 2011, and March 19, 2013 respectively.

Sedan models with the heated and cooled seats could find that the Passenger Occupant Detection System can malfunction, and so stop the passenger’s side airbag from working if in a crash. The dealer is to repair that Passenger Occupant Detection System, with recalls starting from next month.

As for the other recall, this is for the 2015 A3 Cabriolet. 904 of the models built between June 5, 2014, and April 1, 2015. The reason these are being recalled is because the front passenger seat covers could have the incorrect correct stitching, and could stop the side airbag from properly deploying.

Again, the recall is to start in January, where Audi will replace the seatback covers. Do you have an Audi problem you wish to share, is so then please do so on this dedicated page.
