    Summary

    Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2013-2018 Audi S6 and S7, 2012-2018 A7 and A6 Sedan, and 2014-2018 RS7 vehicles equipped with basic seats (with or without heating). Stress or wear of the body-sensing mat within the front passenger seat may cause the Passenger Occupant Detection System (PODS) control module to malfunction.

    Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a PODS system repair kit, free of charge. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed July 31, 2018. Owners will be sent a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 74D5.
