Audi recalls certain A1, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, Q5 and Q7 cars

April 12, 2017

Audi Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain models of the A1, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, Q5 and Q7 manufactured between 18/07/2016 and 14/10/2016.

Audi have been informed by one of their suppliers that, as the result of a change in the production process, their airbag and belt tensioner igniters were manufactured without strict adherence to the prescribed tolerances over a certain period. As a result the airbag or seat belt may not work correctly in the case of an accident.

There are 32 affected vehicles in Ireland.

What to do

Audi Ireland is currently contacting all customers who purchased one of the affected models.  Customers affected by this recall should contact an authorised Audi Dealer so that the necessary refit can be carried out.  This update will be free of charge.  Any Audi customer who has a query about this recall can contact Audi Ireland on 1850 812 760 or by email at
