According to news sources, about 317 units of the 2012 Audi A6 have been recalled after it was discovered that there was a problem with the stitching of the airbags in the vehicle, which can potentially cause them to not deploy in the case of a collision.
The company is recalling the vehicles manufactured from April. 8, 2011 through May. 26, 2011 since the airbags in the vehicles may not have been stitched properly, resulting in a potential failure to deploy in an accident collision. The failure of the airbags deploying results in an increased risk of injury to the vehicles occupant.
The company will begin notifying owners of the vehicles, starting in January 2012, to bring in their vehicles to their local dealers for a free replacement of the faulty airbags. For additional information, contact the company at 1-800-822-8987.
