2017 Audi A3, S3: Recall Alert


Active member
United States
Vehicles Affected: Approximately 12,000 model-year 2017 Audi A3 and S3 luxury cars

The Problem: In a lower-speed crash, the airbag control unit software may deploy the passenger frontal airbag improperly if the front-seat passenger is sitting on the edge of the seat or lying in the seat reclined. If the airbag deploys with more force than intended, it increases the risk of an injury.

The Fix: Dealers will update the airbag control module software for free.

What Owners Should Do: Audi manufacturer Volkswagen will begin notifying owners this month. Owners can call Audi at 800-253-2834, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
