Select Audi A3, A6 And A7 Models Being Recalled

Two separate recall campaigns have been issued by Audi in the United States, which affect three of its models.

The larger of the two is restricted to 2012-2013 A6 sedans produced between March 28, 2011 and March 25, 2013 and 2012-2013 A7s manufactured from January 25, 2011 to March 19, 2013. All told, 21,074 cars are affected.

The problem concerns cars fitted with the optional heated and cooled seats. In those vehicles, the Passenger Occupant Detection System could malfunction, preventing the passenger side airbag from deploying.

The second recall is over 904 units of the 2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet built from June 5, 2014 to April 1, 2015. There’s a possibility that the seat covers for the driver and front passenger seats may have the incorrect stitching, which could prevent either side airbags from deploying,

No injuries or deaths have been reported so far and the problems will be rectified at Audi’s dealerships during February.
