Default Q5 Recall

Hi Folks,

Just read a bit about a recall for Q5 (at least in the German Speaking Region). Any one heard anything for NA???.... Audi Guys in the forum???

One source is a car forum in Germany and the other the Ministry for Transportation (published Dec. 17th, 2009).

For those who can read German:
http://www.motor-talk.de/forum/q5-ru...-t2508883.html
http://www.kba-online.de/gpsg/jsp/gpsg5.jsp (need to choose Audi, Q5, Year 2009). Year 2009 over there can also be our NA MY2010!

What is it about?

In the case of an accident and release of the 'head' air bag there is a possibility that the lining of the A-Pillar can come off. For passengers in the front this can be an increased risk of an injury.

Merry Christmas to everyone.

Thanks for the info. Dumb question - why is Volkswagon listed as the manufacturer, not Audi?

Audi is part of VW, sort of like Lexus is owned by Toyota

VW is the parent company, they own Audi. They also issue the standards and specs.
