Additionally, unless included in "Zone A" above, Volkswagen is recalling certain model year 2004-2008 Audi A4, and 2005-2008 Audi A6 vehicles originally sold, or ever registered, in Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia, or "Zone B." Lastly, unless included in "Zone A" or "Zone B" above, Volkswagen is recalling model year 2004 Audi A4 vehicles originally sold, or registered, in Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front air bags, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

    Consequence: An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

    Actions: Audi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. The interim owner letters were sent to owners in July 2016, and will be sent a second letter once parts are available. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-822-2834.

  2. 2007 Audi A6 STRUCTURE:BODY:TRUNK LID NHTSA Campaign #07V334000

    • Date Announced: AUGUST 01, 2007
    • Vehicles Affected: 23,898

    Summary: On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, the automatic rear lid includes an electric motor and clutch that work in conjunction with two gas struts to open and close the rear lid, including a manual close function. If one of the struts has a total loss of pressure, the resultant slow movement of the rear lid is interpreted by the software as an intended manual close and the motor clutch releases to close the rear lid immediately.

    Consequence: This can result in an unintended rapid closing of the rear lid with a risk of personal injury.

    Actions: Dealers will install new software free of charge. The recall began on September 14, 2007. Owners may contact Audi at 1-800-822-2834. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #07V334000 »
