Update: Audi Q7 Recalled for Crash, Injury Hazard

Volkswagen is recalling certain 2018-2020 Audi Q7 vehicles that were sold with padding on the C-pillar that may not absorb enough impact in the event of a crash. “In the event of a crash, an unbelted occupant’s head may impact the vehicle’s C-pillar padding, increasing the risk of injury,” NHTSA said. Volkswagen is notifying owners and dealers will replace the deformation element on the C-pillars, free of charge. This recall began on November 17, 2020.

What’s the Problem?

This recall affects 2017-2019 Audi Q7 and 2019 Audi Q8, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The bolt connecting the steering shaft to the steering gear on affected Audis may loosen, possibly resulting in a loss of steering control, NHTSA said. A sudden loss of steering control may increase the risk of a crash.

Volkswagen is notifying owners and Audi dealers will repair the steering shaft bolt, if necessary, free of charge. This recall began on May 15, 2020.
