The issue stems from the airbag control module, which may deploy the second stage of the front passenger airbag too quickly after the first stage when the seat is occupied by a child, increasing the risk of injury. It bears reminding that it’s inadvisable and unsafe for a young child to ride in the front seat unrestrained. Visit SafeRides4Kids for information on your state’s car seat laws.

The fix is straightforward: Dealers will update the airbag control module for free. The recall should begin April 16, but owners with further questions can call Audi at 800-253-2834, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
