2010-16 Audi Q5 recalled for sunroof fix

Audi Australia has issued a recall for 9098 examples of its 2010 to 2016 Q5 SUVs over concerns vehicles fitted with a panoramic sunroof could spring a water leak and activate the curtain airbag. The German luxury marque reports the foam adjacent to the gas generator of the curtain airbag can become wet if moisture accumulates over time. If the condition occurs, this can cause corrosion of the gas generator and subsequently burst the pressure cylinder of the curtain airbag.

The updated 2017 BMW 1 Series has been revealed this week, bringing subtle changes and upgrades to the premium small hatch's line-up, ahead of a global launch schedule that kicks off from July. If you're hard-pressed spotting the difference at a glance, you're forgiven. It appears the upgrades are reserved for the interior - unless you're opting for the 'black pack' themed 'Shadow' special editions, which add an array of dark trim highlights.
