Audi Q7 (2019)

Published on 28 March 2020

Possible defect in the locking mechanism on the front head restraints may cause them to unintentionally shift in height when placed under pressure. This could impair the protective effect of head restraints in the event of an accident, increasing the risk of injuries.

The Audi Q7 models affected by this recall were manufactured between July and September 2019.

Audi recall code: 72K3
