Yesterday we reported about Audi’s A4 recall, which affects some 850,000 cars worldwide. Today we know what the impact is here in the United States.
It turns out nearly 102,000 A4 sedans in the U.S. are getting called back due to defective airbags. This action is totally unrelated to the other, much larger airbag recall that’s getting all the attention these days.
The issue with these particular Audis is actually a software fault that can prevent the safety restraints from deploying in a crash. It has nothing to do with Takata-built inflators.
A4s from model years 2013, ’14 and ’15 are affected by this action.
