Approximately 27,000 model-year 2020-21 Audi Q7 SUVs are being recalled due to airbag issues. The airbag control module may deploy the second stage of the front passenger airbag too quickly after the first stage when the seat is occupied by a child, increasing the risk of injury.

Audi will begin notifying owners on April 16. 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 remedy the issue, dealers will update the airbag control module.

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.
