The company reports that a faulty connector on the system’s crash sensor could become detached, potentially causing a delay in the deployment of side airbags and curtain airbags.
As well, the fault could cause a delay in the function of the vehicles’ belt tensioners in the event of a crash.
Audi warns that any delay in the operation of these systems would increase the risk of injury or death for vehicle occupants.
To remedy the fault, Audi is contacting all known owners of affected vehicles. Owners can also contact their nearest Audi dealer to arrange inspection and repair.
Owners can call Audi Australia on 1800 50 2834 between 8am and 6pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time.
