A pair of SUVs called back over rear brake issue

Audi Australia has recalled two 2018 Q5s, over concerns their rear brake pistons are incorrectly coated.

According to the company, the issue could cause a long brake pedal travel and reduced overall braking effectiveness. Less effective brakes, obviously, pose a hazard to the driver and other road users.

Just two cars – that's right, two – are caught up in the recall. A (very short) VIN list is attached here.

Audi will contact owners of the affected vehicles and tell them to contact their nearest dealer for a free fix. Concerned drivers can call 1800 502 834 for more information.
