Update: Audi Q3 Recalled for Brake Pedal Defect, Crash Hazard
The NHTSA on Jan. 31, 2021 announced that Volkswagen is recalling model year 2020 Audi Q3 vehicles which were defectively manufactured with brake pedals that can bend or detach during use, increasing the risk of a crash. “A bent or detached brake pedal plate decreases the contact area for the driver’s foot and increases the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said. Volkswagen is notifying owners and dealers will inspect the brake pedal weld and, if necessary, replace the brake pedal, free of charge. Volkswagen’s number for this recall is 46i7.
What’s the Problem?
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc., is recalling certain Audi Q3 sport utility vehicles equipped with potentially defective airbags which may not properly inflate and/or deploy during a crash, increasing the risk of severe injuries.
This recall affects Audi Q3 SUVs from model year 2019, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The passenger airbag on affected vehicles may not properly deploy through the instrument panel tear seam, NHTSA said. If a crash occurs, the passenger airbag may not properly deploy and inflate, and small plastic parts may enter the cabin, increasing the risk of injury.
Volkswagen is notifying owners and dealers will inspect the instrument panel and replace it, free of charge. This recall began on June 10, 2020.
