Audi has issued a recall on 39 examples, in total, of its 2017 Audi A4, A4 Avant, A4 Allroad, A6, A7, A8 models.
The recall, announced this week, centres on “irregularities in the mix ratio of the igniting agent in some airbag units or belt tensioners”, which could lead to the systems not triggering in an accident as they should.
As a result of the airbag units and seat belt tensioners faults, this may increase risk of injury to occupants in the event of an accident.
For affected vehicles, Audi Australia will be contacting owners, and they are also encouraged to contact their nearest Audi Dealer for an inspection and replacement of affected airbags and seat belt tensioners.
A 24-hour toll-free number has been set up, and any queries or concerns can be forwarded to 1800 502 834.
