Audi has announced a recall on approximately 23,200 model-year 2016-18 Q3 SUVs equipped with LED headlights due to issues with the front turn signal. An inoperable front turn signal may not illuminate an indicator, failing to alert the driver there is a malfunction. This could lead to the driver turning or changing lanes without a signal, increasing the risk of a crash.
Audi will begin notifying owners on July 19. Owners can call the automaker at 800-253-2834 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will update the body control module software.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
