During in-house tests and simulations which are part of continuous product monitoring, it was discovered that in very rare instances, it is possible that the front airbags will not inflate correctly in the event of an accident.

The rectification process will involve a software update in the airbag control unit. It is important to note that no cases have been reported by customers. Audi Ireland is currently proactively contacting customers who purchased a model in this range during this period.

Those affected are asked to make an appointment with an authorised Audi Dealer so that work can be performed promptly.

Alex Todd Brand Manager at seguromo commented "Regardless of what type of air bag system a vehicle has, all motorists should always use their seat belts, to sit as far back as possible from the steering wheel, and to put infants and children 12 and under in the back seat."
