Approximately 3,200 model-year 2019 Audi Q3 SUVs and model-year 2020 Audi A6 sedans, A6 Allroad wagons, and A7 hatchbacks are being recalled because the passenger airbags may not properly deploy through the instrument panel tear seams. The passenger airbag may fail to deploy properly, sending small sharp pieces of plastic into the cabin or may fail to deploy at all.

Audi manufacturer Volkswagen began notifying owners on June 12 for the Q3 and will begin to notify owners of the A6 and A7 vehicles on July 10. Owners can call VW at 800-822-2834 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.

To fix the problem, dealers will replace the instrument panels.

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.
