Audi has recalled both of its larger SUVs in Australia this week, due to a potential problem with the third-row seat.
In seven-seat models of the Audi Q7 and the Audi SQ7, a cross piece on the rear row of seating may not have been manufactured to specification.
Should this be the case, the rear seat may deform during a collision, increasing the risk of injury to passengers.
Affected models are from the 2016 and 2017 model-years, and a total of 3434 are on the recall list in Australia.
While the Audi SQ7 order book is currently open in Australia, and the model is included on the recall list, it’s unlikely any customers have taken delivery of any offending SQ7 examples to date.
Last month, Audi’s A8 luxury model was also recalled in Australia, due to a potential problem with a gearbox solenoid valve.
Audi will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer or phone Audi Australia on 03 8519 8000.
