Volkswagen will be asking approximately one hundred thousand owners of certain 2013-2015 Audi A4 and S4 sedans and 2013-2015 Audi AllRoad crossovers, to return their vehicles to the manufacturer to have the airbag control software updated. During routine testing, the manufacturer identified a potential issue with the frontal airbag system deployment parameters which could result in the front airbags not deploying during a second impact, after the side airbags have been deployed. This problem could result in increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants.
Owners wanting more information about this safety defect are asked to contact Audi customer service at 1-800-822-2834. Volkswagen’s recall number is 69K5 and the NHTSA campaign number is 14V-667.
