audi recalls

In 2017, Audi announced six recalls across 11 of its models according to Rapex. The A5 was most often recalled, followed by the A3, A4, A6, A7 and Q5 models. The oldest car recalled was the 2008 Audi A3.

  •  


Virtually all Audi models produced from July to December 2016 had to be recalled in March 2017 over the possible failure of the airbags or seatbelt pretensioners. The A5 model was also recalled due to defective rear seat belt pretensioners in May.

However, a major problem for the German automaker surfaced in June when recalls of the A4, A5, A6, A7 and Q5 were announced. Vehicles equipped with 2.0T engines produced between 2011 and 2016 had a defective additional coolant pump which could overheat and cause a fire.

Also, Audi was the first among the automakers which had to deal with ABS/ESP issues that subsequently led to recalls of other models of affiliated VW brands. In June 2017, the Audi A3s from 2008-2009 were recalled. The relevant production years are shown in the link under each model.
