Audi is recalling eight examples of its 2020 Q5 SUV due to a fault with the front seats.
“Due to incorrect welding, the gap on the adjusting mechanism for the backrest of the front seats may be faulty,” the company says in its recall notice.
“In the event of a rear collision, the backrest adjuster could break, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. In the event of a serious accident, this could result in the death of a vehicle occupant.”
- A total of eight vehicles are affected from model year 2020.
- Affected vehicles were built between June and July 2020.
