Audi Australia has issued a recall notice for 57 of its 2020 A6 and A7 models due to an airbag issue.

Audi states a manufacturing issue with the dash could cause the front passenger airbag to not fully inflate when triggered.

As well as the airbag not inflating, the parts of the dash covering it could break apart, causing plastic fragments to come loose and potentially lead to serious injury or death.
