25 cars involved, not related to Takata

The 2016 Audi Q3 has been recalled over an issue with the passenger airbag. Just 25 units are affected, though the recall isn't connected to Takata – in spite of its timing.

According to the company, the passenger airbag may not be filled with the necessary amount of gas because of a defective weld joint on the airbag's gas generator.

In an accident, the passenger airbag may not correctly deploy, posing a heightened risk of injury.

A VIN list for the affected Q3 models is attached here.

Audi will contact owners of the included vehicles, and advise them to visit their nearest dealership for a free replacement airbag.
